JC SCHOLARS’ JOURNEY

JC Scholars regularly interact with local leaders who inspire them in their journey to become compassionate social leaders themselves.

High Table Dinners

Regular High Table Dinners bring JC Scholars together and provide opportunities to interact with community leaders. Dignitaries from different sectors are invited to share their vision and inspire JC Scholars in their studies, careers and service.

Words of thanks to high table dinner guests:

“Your experiences of study, career and willingness to serve people are very inspiring and impressive. I admire how you stepped out of your comfort zone to follow your heart and changed your career.”

“You were knowledgeable, humorous, and extremely inspirational. You also reminded us to always do good for society. I will definitely remember the experiences you shared, and hopefully will contribute as much as you have to Hong Kong society in the future.”

“You are definitely our role model. Thank you for reminding us how we should always stay passionate and do our best in our work. I believe if everyone in society is willing to contribute a little, the world may become a lot different.”

Leadership Programme

The annual Leadership Programme has taken place at the University of Oxford and Harvard University since 2016. Participants attend lectures, seminars and workshops conducted by noted speakers and academics.

Induction Programme

The annual Induction Programme helps our JC Scholars build self-awareness and learn about the Club’s operation and its charity work, encouraging them to make the most of the JC Scholar community to serve others. The programme includes an induction camp, visits to Jockey Club facilities and participation in social services.
