2016/17 Life & Career Education Mentorship Project

This is the fifth year of the Life & Career Education Mentorship Project (“LEAP”) for S4 and S5 students. In June, 87 schools that have already participated in the LEAF in past two years were invited by the Foundation to join another project, LEAP, that we shall organize in the school year 2016/2017. The LEAP Taskforce went through a selection process to select the following 10 secondary schools to participate in the project:

  • Fanling Rhenish Church Secondary School
  • HKCCCU Logos Academy
  • Kwun Tong Government Secondary School
  • PHC Wing Kwong College
  • Po Leung Kuk Lo Kit Sing (1983) College
  • Shau Kei Wan East Government Secondary School
  • Shau Kei Wan Government Secondary School
  • St. Paul's College
  • Tseung Kwan O Government Secondary School
  • Yuen Long Public Secondary School

This project aims to enable students to learn, through direct dialogue in groups with mentors, from their mentors’ personal experience, understand better attitudes and ethics needed for career development, appropriate workplace culture, and prepare themselves for future careers. It is hoped that the mentors will share with the students their personal experience in setting goals and life direction, making disciplined efforts in self-improvement, finding ways to adapt to and grow with the working environment, as well as their advances along the career paths. Apart from the sharing sessions, workplace visits will be arranged so that these students can observe the real-life work environment and business operations.

The mentors are mainly middle management staff members from the following 11 corporations whose support are highly appreciated:

  • Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service
  • CLP Power Hong Kong Limited
  • Computer And Technologies Holdings Limited
  • Fairwood Holdings Limited
  • HAECO Hong Kong
  • Haven of Hope Christian Service
  • Holiday Inn Golden Mile
  • McDonald's Restaurants (Hong Kong) Limited
  • Regal Hotels
  • Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited
  • The Hongkong Electric Company Limited

A 3-hour Briefing Session to be conducted by a professional leadership coach will be arranged in November 2016 for all mentors so that they can have a better understanding of the project objectives and approach. Mentors can also learn and share with each other their views on how best to communicate with teens.

All sharing sessions and workplace visits will be arranged between January and April 2017. During May and June 2017, after the sharing sessions with their mentors, each student group from the 10 participating schools will share what they have learnt with their fellow students at their school assembly.
