Project Details

What we need

  • Encourage conversations and speak with students in English, discussing about environmental and sustainability topics (e.g. single use plastics)
  • Facilitate friendly and relaxed conversations about the environment or sharing your personal / professional stories and opportunities
  • Have lunch together at a restaurant at the end of the hike
Background

The Chatteris Impossible 2 Possible (CI2P) Hiking Club offers a unique experience that combines improving English skills whilst exploring the stunning scenery of Hong Kong.

What we have

A briefing is given before the activity (Chatteris Impossible to Possible Hike).

Why this is important

Our activities are attended by students from Chatteris partner schools, which have a significant number of disadvantaged students. These activities provide students with a non-formal environment that allows them to communicate in English genuinely and without any stress.By recruiting volunteers from outside our own organisation, we are enhancing students' exposure to the English speaking environment and providing them with a larger variety of experiences and opportunities.
