Clover

Name of Colleges/Faculties/Units:
Office of Student Affairs

Project Location: Local

CLOVER (Community + Local & Overseas students + Volunteers = Everlasting Relationships) made its debut in 2009. As the programme name suggests, the local and non-local students become friends at the first stage and then join hands to provide community service to different groups of people in the society. The three parties – community, local and overseas students represent the three leaves of a clover literally and hopefully everlasting relationships can be established and the three all can be beneficiaries.

This year 70 CUHK participants are recruited and divided into about 14 groups, each of which comprised of both local and non-local students. They will join hands to serve the new-arrival children, the South Asian minority, and elderly and people with special needs.

Cantonese conversation classes conducted by local participants and group gatherings will be carried out as facilitators for the progress of friendship and a better understanding of local culture. A two-day training camp will also be arranged for participants to enhance their knowledge about target-specific social service and the details of action research.

The community service taking place in the second term will cover outings and lively classes on language, culture introduction, cookery, etc. Throughout the programme, the students are also required to do action research which can be a channel for them to explore local social service in an in-depth and reflective way, and the research findings will be presented at the closing ceremony. A booklet highlighting the programme and capturing the research results will be published in summer.
