[UG] Community Engagement Organizers - Elderly Care Programme

Community Engagement
14 - 30 SEP 2017

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 the Student Residence Hall, 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 Organizers Program (CEOs), we will initiate service programs in visiting these elderly in our neighboring community, Lok Fu, as well as conducting various outing activities to engage the elderly.

We are now recruiting volunteers and registration is now open. Join us to make a difference! Please send the completed application form to hall_edu@hkbu.edu.hk by 5pm, 20 September 2017 (Wednesday).

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