Service Learning Trips
HKUST Connect organizes service learning trips and workcamps in summer and winter breaks. Students will have the opportunities to visit orphanages and teach underprivileged children in Cambodia, organize activities for left-behind children and meet local families in rural China, refurbish village schools in Nepal and much more. These service learning trips will help you broaden your horizons, enrich your university life, and raise your awareness of what it means to be a global citizen. You can also make a difference to the community that you visit, and gain authentic cultural experience that cannot be acquired in a traditional classroom.
