This year, the Institute launches the “RISE Youth Leadership Programme”. 50 students and exchange students of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University will participate in various intensive 1-semester leadership activities, which aim at instilling in them positive values and attitudes, to equip them with leadership abilities to become future leaders with a good sense of responsibility. Activities in this Programme include leadership training camp, workshops and training courses. Students will also go on a 2-week international study tour to South Korea.
This Programme is an innovative endeavour which provides students who have completed two credit-bearing leadership courses offered by the PolyU with more in-depth leadership training and development. We hope that students can apply in this Programme the theories of the relevant subjects which they have learnt previously in the classroom, and to strengthen their knowledge through experience and adventure training. This will also provide them with an invaluable opportunity to actualize their potentials as leaders and to develop their personal skills.
