Jockey Club Teach Unlimited “Walk with Youth” Mentorship Programme
Jockey Club Teach Unlimited “Walk with Youth” Mentorship Programme (the “Programme”) is a school-based mentorship programme in five schools over three years starting August 2017. The Programme not only supports the continuation and enhancement of our established and proven model at schools but also allows us to research and pilot new programmes, including new mentorship and education models such as e-Mentoring at Partner Schools.
This Programme is our first project supported by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. It is expected that the Programme will benefit over 6,000 students with positive impact on their learning attitude, motivation, and self-esteem, a lifetime. For academic year 2017-18, the three Partner Schools under the Programme are:
- Tack Ching Girls’ Secondary School
- TWGHs Kwok Yat Wai College
- TWGHs Yau Tze Tin Memorial College
In addition to supporting our work, the Trust’s funding enables us to develop better metrics on evaluating our programme’s effectiveness and further enhance our sustainability at the schools, building on our past track records on both. As our Partner Schools have committed to sustaining TUF programmes, our work’s impact will multiply and benefit more students for years to come.
Please watch this space as we will update with news from the Programme and our work at the schools regularly.
The Jockey Club Teach Unlimited “Walk with Youth” Mentorship Programme was officially launched on 8 May 2018. The launch ceremony attended by Ms. Freda Tong, Charities Manager of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, as well Professor Cheng Yin Cheong, the Keynote speaker, and also representatives from the 3 Partner Schools and directors of Teach Unlimited Foundation.
During the ceremony, a vigorous plant was being watered, symbolizing the growth of our youth, and that was to mark the cooperation of the Jockey Club and the Teach Unlimited Foundation. We look forward to bring betterment in students’ learning motivation and their self-esteem.
The event was followed by student showcases by 3 Partner Schools’ Program Mentors and mentees. Students’ unique stories were reappeared on stage through drama, storytelling and creating a time capsule. The showcase highlighted the close relationship between mentors and mentees, as well as the impressive personal growth in students.
With the support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, more resources will be provided to mentors and to the service for the students in needed, aiming to inspire the growth of individuals.
