The venture targets to enhance the English proficiency of underprivileged students and promote social inclusion of children and youngsters from different walks of life through peer tutoring and support with the aid of a digital platform.

The project team will recruit Primary 3 to 6 students in Sham Shui Po District as tutees. Year 7 to 13 (UK education system) /Grade 6 to 12 (American or Canadian system) students of international schools will join as peer tutors and enjoy the opportunities of service-learning. Each tutee will attend English workshops totalling 10 hours conducted by peer tutors via an online platform. The project team will provide training to peer tutors and closely monitor their teaching plans/teaching materials as well as the online workshops.

The international school students will pay a participating fee for the service-learning opportunities while grassroots students will enjoy the programme for free.
