What is SSeedS?
Everyday leaders believe that leaders are trained, not born. They trust that everybody has power to lead oneself and change things or lives for the better. As many young people are struggling how to develop and establish their self-identities in a rapid-changing world, everyday leadership is essential for them to experience and learn how to see the world through the eyes of service and develop a service-mind set.
Co-organized with Caritas St. Joseph Secondary School (CSJSS), the Student Development and Resources Section, Office of Student Affairs, will launch a new program named “Shadowing Scheme for Secondary Students (SSeedS)” in 2021. SSeedS aims to provide an opportunity for CUHK students to:
1) serve the community as peer mentors;
2) introduce concepts of everyday leadership;
3) develop a service-mind set;
4) enhance students’ generic competencies of innovative problem solving, communication and teamwork through service learning; and
5) understand themselves, their team and help them flourishing;
SSeedS also create a platform for members to practice how to be an everyday leader. Both SSeedS members (the peer mentors) and the secondary students can benefit through life on life interaction.
