"'Train' for life's journeys" Programme 2017

Since 2009, .Train・ for Life・s Journeys has been providing secondary school students with a unique learning experience to find their passion, enhance soft skills and strengthen their self-confidence. Our goal is to unleash the potential of young people so that they can create bright futures for themselves and their communities.

The 10-day training programme, which is run in conjunction with the Methodist Centre, aims to broaden students・ horizons through a series of workshops, overnight camps, and work experiences at MTR. Through mentorship and a structured career-and-life planning element, students will have the chance to strengthen their interpersonal communications and creative-thinking skills.
