MEET & SHARES
Project Share will design, initiate and facilitate meetings for students first in Tin Shui Wai, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Tung Chung, then with corporate partners with the objectives of:
- Sharing successes, failures and experiences;
- identifying challenges in overcoming recognised obstacles;
- exploring how all stakeholders can contribute (collectively “lessons learned”); and
- recording and providing wider access to lessons learned;
These meetings aim to provide a platform for the youth to explore and discuss openly, in guided manner, their experiences as well as to identify more structured solutions as they encounter educational and career decisions and challenges.
Who will be involved in the discussion?
CAP is dedicated to serving young people under the age of 21 studying in Band II and III secondary schools located in disadvantaged areas of Hong Kong, primarily Tin Shui Wai, Yuen Long, Tuen Mun and Tung Chung.
Young people at various levels of self- and career development will be involved:
- those who have succeeded in finding employment outside their own locale;
- those who are trying to enhance their lives; and
- those intending to try but still in school.

Involvement of corporate partners
Project Share work with corporate partners to explain how people can enter specific companies.
