VolTrekkers Service-learning Scheme
VolTrekkers Service-learning Training Scheme is organized by Student Affairs Office (SAO) and supported by Hong Kong Shun Lung Yan Chak Foundation Limited (香港順龍仁澤基金會) which aims at providing solid service-learning experience to HSUHK students and fostering them to become global citizens. Students can plan and implement their own service projects through this Scheme under the support and guidance from SAO.
Through the scheme, students will be able to come into close contact with the service target and thus have a deeper understanding and reflection on a specific social issue.
They can learn, grow, and enrich their life experience by planning, implementing, reflecting, and evaluating their service experience. After the completion of the whole program, students can equip numerous skills such as research, interpersonal communication, problem solving and program design.
The Scheme is divided into THREE stages:
Stage 1- Participating in various trainings on specific social issues
The scheme provides a flexible training schedule for students to select suitable training based on their own learning needs. Participants can increase their understanding on specific social issues and to equip themselves on social service planning in the next stage.
Stage 2 – Forming team to initiate your own Community Care Project!
Participants will form service teams to design their own community caring projects. They will be involved in itinerary design, service planning and project coordination alongside the SAO as well as local service partners.
Getting the guidance from service-learning tutor (served by NGO partners), participants will have a deeper understanding and reflection on a specific social issue, and successfully design the service which can fit the service target’s needs.
Stage 3 – Engaging in a fully/partially FUNDED Overseas service-learning trip
Selected students from stage 2 will be invited to join an overseas service-learning trip. Participants will understand more about the social issues in international aspects.
Participants will be involved in assessing needs of service targets, conceiving feasible and sustainable service projects, having post-service evaluation and reflection after returning back to HK.
