The Self-governing Scheme for Students (the Scheme) is implemented with an aim to nurture CYC members’ management skills and leadership skills. Under this Scheme, members may join the student executive committee (EC) and assist the teacher-in-charge to coordinate CYC activities and fulfill some simple duties. After becoming EC members, students will be given a designated member badge while schools can also distribute certificates of appointment as a reward.

The management team is responsible for arranging activities, administration and maintaining the performance of the Club. The teacher-in-charge may work with the chairperson to implement CYC projects, or he/she may implement these projects via the chairperson. Long-term plans and other important issues must be discussed at the CYC General Meeting before the executive committee makes a final decision. Short-term plans should first be proposed by the executive committee before passing to the relevant task group for consideration.
Members of the executive committee are elected by CYC members. The date and mode of election shall be decided by each CYC school. Schools may refer to the “Constitution and Rules of the Community Youth Club” for the management and operation of CYC in schools. Adjustments can be made based on individual needs.
CYC in primary schools
CYC in primary schools can set up a number of functional teams. Each team may consist of 10 members and is led by a team leader. Primary 5 or 6 students, who are of older age, may be appointed as leaders or vice leaders so that they can benefit from the leadership training. The team system can also help generate a sense of belonging in members. Team leaders can assist in doing some simple tasks, such as keeping members informed of CYC news, thus facilitating the operation of the CYC.
