[UG] Community Engagement Organisers - Elderly Care Programme

Community Engagement
10 AUG 2018 - 30 APR 2019


Have you ever thought of serving the elderly in need in the neighboring community with the talents and gifts you have? In Hong Kong today, more than 120,000 elderly who are aged 65 or above live alone and many of them are socially inactive due to multiple reasons including physical and mental health conditions. Here in HKBU, we have a burden to serve the community and we would like to partner with you all in making a difference.

Through the Community Engagement Organisers Programme (CEOs) setup by the Undergraduate Halls, we have been conducting service programmes in visiting these elderly in our neighboring community, Lok Fu & Wong Tai Sin, as well as conducting various outing activities in the past semester to engage the elderly.

We are now recruiting volunteers and all Undergraduate students are welcome to join. Partner with us to make a difference! The registration form can be found in HERE and please send the completed application form to hall_edu@hkbu.edu.hk by 20 January 2019 (Sunday).

This is a Co-curricular Learning (CCL) recognized event. Participants with satisfactory attendance and performance will be counted towards their CCL attendance requirement.
