Servant Leadership

City University of Hong Kong (CityU) Student Development Service (SDS) initiated the Servant Leadership Training Programme (SLTP) with the objective of developing a positive attitude and a service-driven mind-set in students. Participants received training in the core principles of servant leadership according Robert Greenleaf that puts ‘others-first’ on everyday practice. 

SLTP provides a platform for them to develop planning, organizational and leadership skills in the service of others and to learn to work with teammates from various academic disciplines and collaborate with people from all walks of lives. 

In the year of 2015-16, 99 students were recruited and three subgroups were formed to deliver services in three directions as: 

Web Maker: Provide webpage design and production services for NGOs and various university programmes;

Wellness Transformers: Provide fitness and wellness training for low-income primary school students or disadvantaged groups;

Walkie Talkers: Conduct cultural and eco tours for non-local students.

To further develop the programme, three more groups are going to be formed as: 

Social Walkmen: Explore social issues through community study and action learning;

Serve as tutor for primary school children through online learning platforms;

Wise Walkers:
Provide guidance and mentoring for the children of handicapped parents.
