A team of Connect ACE cooperated with Choi Hung Estate Catholic Secondary School to organize this 2-day service project with the aim to enhance the communication, problem solving and social skills of the junior secondary school students from grassroots families, as well as to give them a glimpse of life at university.

Through interactive workshops, simulation, and guidance from volunteers in the first session, the participants were able to know more about HKUST and obtain some basic skills required to be a tour guide, such as speaking and communicating with a group of people and different ways to present information. Their families were then invited to visit HKUST with the participants being their tour guide in the second session, and they all had a joyful weekend at the campus.

這個service是我第一次與初中生接觸。這個主題「導遊」很特別,對於初中生和我也是一個新的體驗。我很開心能成功令他們變得投入,由被動變到會主動問問題。帶他們遊科大能夠令他們對於大學生活有一個不同的體驗,希望這體驗能令他們憧憬大學生活,努力學習。

通過今次服務,我認識了更多不同的中學生,發現和自己中學時期有很大分別。我從其他義工和籌委身上學習到溝通技巧,發掘話題,亦感受到由ice-breaking game開始都已經為導遊目標而準備的心思。活動也讓我認識了不少朋友,大家一起過了充實的一天。希望下次活動能接觸更多不同的人。
