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. As a young organization that is wholly student-led, the support of the community is necessary to grow and to enable. Join us for this presentation to learn about ways in which you and your companies can work with Support! International to ensure that today’s students have the skills they need to succeed in tomorrow’s workforce.

*Light refreshment included

Hosted by the Education Committee

Support! International Foundation is a youth-led NGO dedicated to empowering young people through education and leadership. Founded in 2014 as a student group, the organization has since attained its official charity status under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Department in 2017. What started as a team of 7 operating 1 educational program, has since grown to a team of 111 middle and high schoolers operating 6 educational programs and 3 major youth empowerment events. Since its founding, the organization has impacted over 1000 students and continues to rebrand the role of young people in Hong Kong. Looking to the future and always with an eye on its mission, Support! International aims to scale up impact and implement more community projects that can mobilize young people to be positive change-makers.
