Service Learning and Outbound Trips

Service-learning Trip in Myanmar

Service Learning Trip in Myanmar 2019


Engaging in community service in Hong Kong or other parts of the world provides you with opportunities to contribute to society, reflect on social and global issues, and demonstrate a sense of responsibility. Through hands-on service projects, you can immerse yourself in their environments while giving back to the community in a meaningful way.
