CUHK and the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) are joining hands again to present the third edition of the CUHK x HKTB Youth Academy in July.  This will be an invaluable opportunity for you to develop your capacities in creativity, teamwork, and leadership, as well as to achieve a comprehensive understanding of tourism in Hong Kong.


The first CUHK x HKTB Youth Academy was held in summer 2021, in which CUHK student ambassadors of the Academy had conceptualized, planned, and ran two virtual guided tours, one of Tsim Sha Tsui and one of Tai Po, to an international audience.  At the upcoming Academy, the ambassadors will, under the guidance of a team of veteran mentors, learn essential skills in storytelling, research and presentation through a series of training sessions and rehearsal.  8 – 10 ambassadors, CUHK full-time students, will work together to showcase the arts and culture in the West Kowloon Neighbourhood by curating a virtual guided tour.
