CYC activities can be broadly divided into three types, i.e. centrally-coordinated, district-based and school-based activities. Centrally-coordinated activities are organized by the CYC Office. District-based activities are usually carried out by the respective school inspectors responsible for CYC affairs and District Committees under various themes of services. They are generally large-scale activities which require more funding support and last for a longer period of time.
School-based activities and service programmes are held at the school level. Schools are encouraged to organise these activities to help develop students’ independence and organisation skills, and to help them become civic and social-minded citizens who are ready to serve and care for the needy and to take an active role in social service. The activities should be in line with the CYC’s aims and objectives and be consistent with our motto “Learn, Be Concerned and Serve”.
School-based activities can be organized in different ways based on the schools’ uniqueness and the students’ needs. CYC activities can take the following forms like by individual CYC members, in groups, by all members in school, in collaboration with other schools and organisations and so on. The teachers-in-charge can approach the school inspectors responsible for CYC affairs in their districts for information and assistance.
