Volunteer Ambassadors Scheme

The Volunteer Ambassadors (VAs) are extraordinary individuals who decided to not only be part of the community, but to make the community part of them and go beyond volunteering to support fellow volunteers and CYEP officers.

Objectives of the scheme are:

  • to promote City Youth Empowerment Project (CYEP) and service-learning experiences to all CityU members (including students and alumni)
  • to foster relationships among CYEP volunteers
  • to take on a leadership role to provide guidance to new volunteers
  • to work alongside with officers in organizational tasks

VAS is composed of members of various backgrounds and personalities. They are divided into 4 teams:

  1. Promotion Team
    • promotes volunteerism, social awareness and CYEP in CityU campus
  2. Volunteer Training Team
    • provides training workshops and inter-service sharings which help volunteers equip necessary skills as well as understand volunteering ideology behind CYEP services
  3. Volunteer Networking Team
    • builds relationships and lifts the team spirit among volunteers
  4. Community Engagement Team

With everyone’s amazing characters, but as different as everyone is, each VA forms an integral pixel of the bigger picture and enhances our volunteering resolution.
