Hardy Zhou, an accomplished tax lawyer (LLM, CPA, MBA) of preeminent global law firms, is the first in his family to attend college. Inspired by his own experience, Hardy founded China Youth of Tomorrow (CYOT) in January 2019 to serve first-generation college students.

Together with our mentors, team members and volunteers, we create programs and trainings to harness the power of long-term, personal relationships to help students succeed.

CYOT was named “Social Enterprise of the Year” at The American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai’s 2022 CSR Awards and “For Good Enterprise” at Caixin Global’s 2022 For Good Awards. Also, CYOT has been named a finalist of Singapore International Foundation’s Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) Program and featured in more than 20 newspapers including China Daily.

Thus far, CYOT has benefitted millions of students.

Everyone deserves a champion!
