SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

accumulate Youths' Social and work capital

 
 
 

OVERVIEW

Project Share created the Summer Internship Programme, with the aim to bring young people living in disadvantaged area to the Central business area of Hong Kong so they can experience and learn from professionals.  

This programme involves youth working in companies with professionals to expand young people’s social network and learning the professional work culture from people they encounter at the workplace.

OBJECTIVES

  • to give young people exposure to the professional work environment

  • to connect young people to professional individuals who can provide personal and professional guidance at the workplace and beyond

  • to familiarise youth with Central and other business districts, where many of them have never been before and very few have knowledge and experience of the working environments and to overcome the mental barriers caused by the geographical and cultural divide.
  • to provide a platform for mentors and interns to understand each other, and for mentors to discover potentials of students

INDUSTRIES

CORPORATE PARTNERS

This programme is made successful with the contribution of corporate partners who are willing to offer their time and skills.  If your company is interested in offering placements to young people living in disadvantaged areas for 3-6 weeks during the month of July and August, you will first need to nominate one Cantonese-speaking co-workers to be the mentor who would be responsible of being the main contact for the young person and other members of the team within your work.
