Making sure that today’s students are ready for tomorrow’s work-force has never been more important or relevant. 21st Century skills are necessary for all students but there are many communities in Hong Kong that are under-served, lacking the resources necessary to provide critically important programming for young people. Providing young people with opportunities not typically available to them is an essential component to their development as independent individuals capable of enacting change through cross-cultural and cross-generational interaction. While it is easy to identify the need, it is not always as easy to develop and implement the programming that will fill the gap. Support! International Foundation
has done just that: developed and implemented unique programming providing opportunities not typically available in many communities – programs that will help students strengthen the skills they need to succeed in the work force of the future.AmCham invites you to join us to meet the student leaders behind Support! International.Through presentation and Q & A, you will learn how the Support! International team, as students, can produce effective youth-to-youth education, and the ways in which responsibility has pushed them to go above and beyond their pre-conceived abilities to organize and impact
