Loving Arts Youth Academy

 

About the Academy

Over the past decades, the Welfare Council’s Children and Youth Service units has employed art therapy as a means of intervention to groom teenagers and foster their personal development. To consolidate its work in art education and provide comprehensive art and personal growth education, 9 children and youth service units of the Council have made a concerted effort to establish the Loving Arts Youth Academy on 1st January, 2017, offering teenagers a wide spectrum of art courses. Moreover, the academy provides personal growth and counselling services, exchange activities, social services and a platform of performances and competitions to teenagers, ensuring that they fulfil the mission of “Loving Oneself”, “Loving Others” and “Loving One’s Community”.
