Fostering youth development
We invest in education programs that focus on inspiring students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), including programs that support teacher development and training.
In Hong Kong, we have worked with local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and education institutions to develop various educational programs about STEM. For example, we support Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and St. James’ Settlement (SJS) to organize STEM workshops through, which students can explore engineering concepts and applications.
We also contribute to capacity building of young people through programs that help them develop personal values, unleash potential, and pursue aspirations. Major initiatives in recent years include:
- A Business Ethics program organized by Junior Achievement Hong Kong, which helps young people expand their exposure to ethical decision making and develop their personal ethical values. Since its launch in 2005, the program has benefited near 6,100 post-secondary and university students.
- Job shadowing programs and visits to our office and facilities for secondary and tertiary students. Through learning-by-doing training, participating students can learn about daily work at an energy company. Our partners included Junior Achievement Hong Kong, the Education Bureau, HKUST and Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce.
- Leadership and career seminars for secondary and tertiary students, organized in collaboration with NGOs and education institutions.
