In the coming summer, HKUST Connect has arranged for you various service learning trips to different places.

You will have the opportunities to organize activities for underprivileged children or learn more about social enterprise in Cambodia and Mainland China. Through engaging in service trips, you will be able to broaden your horizons, enrich your university life, and raise your awareness of your responsibilities as a global citizen.
