Capacity Building and Human Library Workcamp
Description: SCI Hong Kong is working with seven secondary schools in Hong Kong on a Global Education project. We aim to improve global understanding, creativity and life enrichment of young people.
We are organizing a capacity building training for young people. We need volunteers to help us carry out that training.
The seminar will empower youth capacity in creativity, social cohesion, leadership and provide them a vision for the future.
Type of Work: The program highlight is two residential training programs lasting three-days-two-nights for 25 students each. Non-formal education methods are used alongside various activities including human library, invisible theater, and more, in these workshops.
Volunteers will assist in running the program with such as preparation of food and workshops.
During the program volunteers will also visit two schools to conduct a Human Library in which volunteers will become a human book to share their stories.
