Founded in 2006, “Sowers Action Youth Ambassador Programme” (the “Programme”) is a secondary-school-sector charity education programme leading by the volunteers from Sowers Action. The Programme has cultivated over 600 secondary school students as Youth Ambassadors within its 6-year history. This year, the Programme not only aims to enhance the leadership skills, ability of organising and sense of responsibility, but also to enrich the sight by providing the participants various activities: talks, workshops and training camps for instance.
The Programme is highlighted by a 6-day exchange trip to rural China. Participants would find it meaningful and unforgettable as they will experience the life of the local students with the unique “1 to 1 matching”: each of the participants will be assigned to a local student, spending their time together and lodging in the school throughout the trip. The matching absolutely builds up a strong connection for culture and academic exchange, benefiting the personal growth of the participants. Moreover, sharing sessions will be held after the trip, calling for more concern and care to the rural China in the society.
