How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Translator (English to Chinese)

Translate 2-3 English articles in the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award 2019-20 Awardee Booklet

Project Details

What we need

  • Understand the English articles written by the awardees
  • Translate 2-3 English articles (around 500 words each) into Chinese
  • Review the translation to make sure two languages are aligned

Background

Each year, we would publish a booklet for the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award, which includes the sharing from the Winners of that year. By sharing how they strive for excellence and how they define outstanding, other students could be encouraged and inspired. As there may be non-Chinese speakers among the winners, we need your help to translate their articles into Chinese by keeping every message that the winners try to deliver.

What we have

The previous booklets and a glossary for the terms of the Youth Arch Foundation and the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award would be provided. Volunteers may feel free to ask for help if they encounter any difficulties during the project.

Why this is important

Youth Arch Foundation have a mission to recognise and develop youth talents and the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award aims to encourage promising students with outstanding academic, extra-curricular and community service achievements, and morality. Through the bilingual booklet, the story of our awardees can be shared with students from either Chinese or non-Chinese background. Therefore, this project is meaningful and indispensable to make the award perfect and achieve the goals.

What we do

The Youth Arch Foundation (YAF) is a charitable organization on youth development run by a group of past winners and finalists of the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award. YAF strives to foster youth talents and to encourage youth to contribute to society through active participation in community services. In order to recognize and develop youth talents, YAF presents two awards annually that aim at commending promising secondary school students, namely the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award (founded in 1985) and the Youth Arch Student Improvement Award (formerly known as the Best Improved Students Award) (founded in 1991). A wide range of activities are organized for awardees to actively participate in community services and to explore leadership potential. In addition, YAF established the Youth Committee that provide platforms for youth to interact and learn from each other; and to support youth in terms of their personal, educational, career and life developments. YAF also provides assistance to the Hong Kong Outstanding Students’ Association, which is a student-run organization comprised of the past awardees of the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award.
