HSUHK Volunteer Team
Established in 2013, HSUHK Volunteer Team (香港恒生大學義工隊 – 「恒義」) offers students opportunities for community engagement. Beyond participation in community services, comprehensive trainings on service skills and sharing by various NGO co-workers are offered to students, enhancing students’ social awareness and responsibilities and equipping students with skills for serving the others. The Volunteer Team had engaged in various types of community services including organizing food waste-reduction campaign, visiting homeless dogs, promoting organ donation, offering online tutorial for primary students, sending self-designed greeting cards to the disabilities, etc.
Student Organising Committee (OC)
To encourage more student-led service projects in the University, HSUHK Volunteer Team was restructured into a Student Organising Committee in 2016/17.
With the aim to encourage active participation of HSUHK students in volunteer services, the Organising Committee (OC) works to initiate plans and coordinate service projects for the HSUHK community. Students build a strong partnership with NGOs to organise volunteer services and actively engage themselves in service planning and volunteer management.
In 2016/17, 15 students of the Organising Committee participated in a service-learning exchange trip (HSUHK x Asia University Service-learning Exchange Programme) co-organised by the University and Asia University in Taiwan. Students from both institutions joined hands to serve the underprivileged in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
