Govt seeks talented youths

The Member Self-recommendation Scheme for Youth started phase four of its recruitment today.   The number of participating committees has been increased from 10 to 15, covering a wider spectrum of policy areas. Each of the committees will offer two seats for appointment.   Young people aged 18 to 35 who want to serve the community are invited to nominate themselves to join.   Those interested should have a strong commitment to serve the community, good understanding of the policy area concerned, and good analytical and communication skills.   Applications close on May 26 and scheme details are available on the Home Affairs Bureau website.    Applicants must write no more than 600 words or provide a video or audio clip to explain, in either Chinese or English, their suitability for the committee they choose.   The Home Affairs Bureau said around 400 posts are currently held by young people who have been appointed to advisory and statutory bodies through the scheme.   The overall ratio of youth members in these bodies has increased from 7.8% in 2017 to the current 13.7%, gradually approaching the target of 15% set by the current-term Government, it added.
