Powered By Youth Forum is Kids4Kids annual two-day forum which aims to cultivate students aged 12-17 to be socially conscious and community responsible.
September 15 & 29, 2018 | 9am - 5pm
King George V School
In the annual 2-day forum, students will learn from inspiring speakers and facilitators in different "Power Group" and "Passion Group" workshops. The Power Groups focus on personal strengths, and Passion Groups target social issues. Students can form groups or work individually to transfer their newfound powers and passion into their own community action project ideas. They can finally sign up and pitch to a judging panel for a chance to bring their ideas to life. Five selected projects on the day will be allocated a seed funding of HK$5,000 and a Kids4Kids mentor to help implement the project in the following six to nine months.
