I·CARE Cross-generational Integration Programme
The Cross-generational Integration Programme aims at facilitating interaction between senior citizens and young people, so as to promote mutual understanding and respect across different generations. In March 2020, the programme will re-organise the event “Playing a University Student for a Day”. A group of secondary school students and elderly people will be invited to attend mock lecture, facilities visit and graduation ceremony, etc. at CUHK to get a taste of university life. Besides, the programme will arrange an experiential camp in April 2020 for CUHK students to pair up with elderly people in various thematic activities in order to promote cross-generation integration.
I·CARE Hong Kong Cultural Tours Project
Hong Kong has a pivotal role in international context. Not only does this city occupy an important position in the history of modern China, it is also inextricably linked with countries around the world. Nevertheless, how much do you know about the stories of this “Pearl of the East”?
Admitted students will receive a series of professional training (e.g. tour guiding techniques, communication skills, and tactics of shooting) before being engaged in field trips on designated routes. They will then be given chances to lead cultural tours serving secondary school students to unveil the hidden side of Hong Kong.
"Fitness x Mentorship" Scheme
The “Fitness x Mentorship” Scheme associates “exercising” with “volunteering” to foster a serving heart of students and strengthen their understanding of the community. Participants of the scheme will be trained with basic skills of a sports item and given chances to partner various members of the community in pursuing sports. This will allow students to develop regular exercise habit and build up healthy lifestyle. Above all, mutual understanding between students and the circle of their counterparts will be facilitated.
A Walk in Community with I·CARE
We will visit local communities with different NGOs to learn how they engage social issues with innovation, hoping to explore new possibilities for university students to take part in social affairs. Welcome to join any of the following walks!
