Powered By Service
Powered by Service (PBS) is a bilingual school-based capacity building workshop designed for secondary schools with limited resources, covering approximately 6 hours of training. The curriculum is delivered in partnership with Usher's New Look, a U.S. based organization that develops global youth leaders by providing access and awareness.
Through a high-energy, transformative learning experience, students discover their ability to impact the world by building personal and community leadership skills. PBS places a strong emphasis on service as a means to develop the whole person, introducing important topics that are often not covered within the standard Hong Kong curriculum.
PBS students are invited to join the annual Powered by Youth Forum (PBY) for free to further develop their ideas and form project collaborations. Click here to find out more. Students may also submit their community action ideas to Act!on for a Cause directly for a chance to win seed funding and a mentor to implement their projects.
PBS aims for students to:
- Build ability to lead, work in teams, and communicate effectively
- Develop analytical skills and motivation to initiate action
- Nurture imagination to lead their own community action ideas
