About the Conference

The 2017 CLAP for Youth @ JC 2017 Conference has been successfully conducted at The Chinese University of Hong Kong on 29-30 June 2017. The theme of the Conference is “Youth-centred Career Development and Intervention: Towards Enabling Community”.

The annual CLAP for Youth @ JC Conference aims to bring the latest in theory and practice on career development and career and life planning, and to share the good practices of career development professionals, teachers, and social workers. Through the 2017 conference theme of “Youth-centred Career Development and Intervention: Towards Enabling Community” we hope to bring together different stakeholders to share and discuss how to develop and cultivate a supportive, enabling social environment to help young people construct and implement their multiple career/life pathways. In addition to keynote addresses, plenary presentations, and parallel sessions, there are forums where stakeholders are invited to share, have dialogues, and exchange ideas.

The keynote speakers of the 2017 Conference are Professor Paul J. Hartung from Northeast Ohio Medical University and Professor Peter McIlveen from University of Southern Queensland. Professor Hartung speaks on the topic of “Designing life-careers in an unpredictable world”. Professor McIlveen addresses the themes of “Using the Effective Career Development Interventions”. In addition to the keynote addresses, there are plenary sessions, parallel presentation sessions, and forums where innovative practices and research findings are shared.
