Shadowing Scheme for Secondary Students (SSeedS)

What is SSeedS?

Co-organised with Caritas St. Joseph Secondary School (CSJSS), the Student Experience and Development Section, Office of Student Affairs, organises a service project called “Shadowing Scheme

1) make friends;
2) provide an opportunity for CUHK students to serve the community as peer mentors;
3) introduce concepts of everyday leadership;
4) develop a service-mind set;
5) enhance students’ generic competencies of innovative problem solving, communication
and teamwork through service learning; and
6) understand yourself, your team and help them ourishing.
SSeedS also creates a platform for members to practice how to be an everyday leader. Both SSeedS
members (the peer mentors) and the secondary students can benefit through life on life interaction.
