1) A series of talks & seminars

The programme will be joined and led by 5 global leaders from different countries to share their knowledge and experience focused on 5 key topics: 

Women Empowerment, represented by Lina Khalifeh, Founder of SheFighter & OYW Ambassador. 
Climate Change, represented by Yolanda Joab, Senior Program Coordinator for International Organisation for Migration & OYW Ambassador.

2) A 72-hour Impact Challenge Competition in Hong Kong: “Unleash your creativity and mobilization ability” 

Design and execute self-initiated service projects/social campaigns in any format to maximize public awareness of the 5 key topics of focus.

3) A free Overseas Apprenticeship opportunity: “Shadowing the global leaders to understand their mission and vision”

3 overseas apprenticeships will be awarded to the winning team of the 72- hour Impact Challenge Competition. Three leaders, Lina Khalifeh, Arizza Nocum & Jasmine Lau will offer apprenticeship opportunities at the headquarter of their organisations for a month to learn about their operations.

4) Extension Project: “A Fast Track to become a “Regional Director” or “Founder” of Social Institution - marking a milestone on your career path”

Upon return from the apprenticeship, the apprentice shall either set up a new chapter of the respective organisation in Hong Kong or start a new initiative addressing the related issue for 6 months. Guidance and support will be provided by the host institution and The HKFYG throughout the project.
