Objectives of Volunteer Service
We are commited to promoting and developing sustainable volunteer service, encouraging volunteers to participate in social services, so as to build their self-esteem and self-confidence as well as nurturing a caring community.
In response to different community needs, we provide volunteer training, service matching as well as co-ordinating volunteer service. Short-term and long-term service will be offered for the target group with special needs in the community, for example single-parent families, new arrivals, low- income families and unemployed youth, etc. Moreover, dates and frequency of service will be arranged depending on the availability of the volunteers.
In order to recognize the volunteers’ contribution to the society, on top of the awards presented by our agency, we proactively nominate our volunteers for various volunteer awards which are administered by different organizations and government departments such as the Caring Company Logo of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and the Volunteer Movement Award of the Social Welfare Department, etc.
