Strive and Rise Program 2023-24

The Government has launched the “Strive and Rise Programme” which aims to address intergenerational poverty by helping underprivileged students, who join the Programme as mentees, achieve their life goals and strive for upward mobility.

58 Broadway students participated as mentees in this school year. Mentees will each be paired up with a volunteer mentor who will share his/her life experience to help the mentees build up their self-confidence and guide them to develop their personal goals proactively and positively; the mentors will also assist their mentees in developing positive financial planning concepts and applying effectively the financial support provided under the Programme.

Each mentee will be given a start-up sum of $5,000 for spending under the guidance of the mentor to achieve his/her personal development plan; upon successful completion of the Programme, a scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded to the mentee for his/her own deployment by applying the financial planning concepts acquired.

Mentees joined various activities including orientation day, basic trainings on life planning/capacity building/financial planning, group activities like visits to Cathay City, Science Museum, Tuen Mun Public Riding School, Wetland Park, Crowds wowed by Inter Miami CF. All these are precious opportunities for our mentees to explore more, broaden their horizons, and widen their social networks.
