Jockey Club SportsEXPLORE Project

Jockey Club SportsEXPLORE Project

Background

Funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and supported by a social venture Social S Limited, Jockey Club SportsEXPLORE Project runs from April 2021 till March 2024. Through “SPORTS AS A GAME, SPORTS AS A LIFE SKILL, SPORTS AS A CAREER," the project aims to promote community fun-based sports and sports careers for youth. We aim to improve participants’ physical and mental health and facilitate young people's development by strengthening their life skills. In addition, by broadening their horizon in the sports industry, their career life development exploration would be enriched and transformed for their future development. Our project promotes that sports could be one of the possibilities in their career life development, but not only interest in life.

To strengthen their life skills and broaden young people's horizons in the sports industry through engaging and inspiring activities like self-understanding and sharing workshops, allowing them to explore the possibilities in career life development.

3. SPORTS AS A CAREER

To broaden young people's horizons in the sports industry by participating in diverse workplace learning opportunities, facilitating their exploration in career life development.
