Background

Summerbridge Hong Kong is a non-profit organization which creates unique educational opportunities for highly motivated, but socioeconomically underprivileged secondary school students in Hong Kong. Each summer, a group of talented student teachers from local and overseas high schools and universities teach and administer an intense five-week, English-learning program, in which they inspire and mentor local students.For more information, please visit summerbridge.org.hk.

What we have

Teachers undergo two weeks of training workshops to prepare them to design their own curriculum, teach their own classes and evaluate student performance. Throughout the training and the duration of the Summer program, experienced Summerbridge teachers are available to provide support and guidance.

Why this is important

At Summerbridge, we give our students skills that help improve their life trajectory and inspire them to dream big. By joining this program, you will be able to mentor these students, see their self-confidence blossom, and know that you have made a positive impact on youth in Hong Kong.

What we do

Founded in 1992, Summerbridge Hong Kong is a non-profit organization, which creates unique educational opportunities for highly motivated, but socioeconomically underprivileged secondary school students in Hong Kong. It provides comprehensive year-round programs to develop students’ English communication, self-confidence, and interest in the learning process through an intensive English Language Development curriculum, small class size, individual mentoring, and hands-on learning strategies. Each summer, the students are immersed in an intense five-week, English-only environment, in which they are taught and mentored by a highly qualified group of international student teachers from local and overseas high schools and universities. The uniqueness and quality of the program results from its "students teaching students" model, offering older students the opportunity to teach and administer programs to younger students in a dynamic learning environment where young people are both the initiators and beneficiaries of the educational process.
