Teach for an Hour


- What can you do with 1.5 hours?

We offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities to help children from underprivileged backgrounds. Starting from October 2007, we have launched a weekend tutor programme with local schools in some of the most socio-economically deprived districts of Hong Kong. You can help these children by spending part of your weekend with them: teach them core subjects such as English and Science, or develop your own curriculum ranging from personal finance management to creative design. Your role as teachers will make a difference to these students.
