Macau youth volunteers experience the volunteer services and promote ‘Love and Social Inclusion’ in the Greater Bay Area
The Salvation Army (Macau) Education Centre organised a kick-off ceremony today (5 May) to celebrate the launch of the Morning Light 2019 Volunteer Programme, which recruits a group of youth volunteers to experience the SEN volunteer services through a series of trainings. A number of guests attended and showed their support to the programme in the ceremony.
The main theme of the volunteer programme is ‘Love and Social Inclusion’. The programme will last for around half a year, hoping to deepen the young volunteers’ understanding of SEN through trainings and services. The programme, supported by Education and Youth Affairs Bureau, Wynn Macau Limited and various organisations, has recruited over 30 youth volunteers from Macau aged between 18 and 35. They will be trained in Macau and learn about the needs of students suffering from ADHD and boost the students’ execution abilities by using ‘visual strategies’. After the training is completed, the volunteers will exchange what they have learnt with the schools in the cities of the Greater Bay area – Hong Kong, Macau and Foshan (not mentioned in Chinese?!), which is also a support to the aspects of encouraging education collaboration and interaction among youths of the Greater Bay Area to echo the Greater Bay Area development plan.
