Kickoff of TUF Program in Two New Partner Schools 2014
TUF reached another milestone with the kick-off of two new school projects in September 2014 at Tsang Pik Shan Secondary School and T.W.G.Hs. Yow Kam Yuen College in Ma On Shan and Shatin. These projects are delivered by four newest members of the TUF program mentor team.
To prepare for the project kickoff, meetings were held between program mentors and TUF management, and the school leadership in August to discuss details of the implementation plans. In addition to small group learning, which is TUF’s signature offering, new programs are being developed and planned to serve the unique needs of the students. For instance, at Tsang Pik Shan Secondary School, a “Pave Your Own Way” project has been planned to expand the students’ horizon so as to assist with their search for future direction. At TWGHs Yow Kam Yuen College, program mentors will organize a master of ceremony training and an English radio program to boost students’ confidence, train future trainers; and to enhance their interests in speaking English.
TUF is excited about the new partnership we have developed with these two schools. Being able to find like-minded people who share our commitment toward students from families with limited resources is one of the greatest joys of our work. And we believe that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
