  1. The EOC Launches “Career Challenge 2010/11”  
The EOC is pleased to launch the ninth year of our annual youth mentorship programme, Career Challenge, aimed at breaking down stereotypes. The programme is co-organised with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Group (HKFYG) this year. Aside from the opportunity for youths to interact with ten mentors who are outstanding achievers in their respective fields, Career Challenge 2010/11 will feature a new web radio programme on the U Channel of the HKFYG website with ten sharing sessions to be hosted by recruited youth mentees. Participation in Career Challenge can be taken into account for the planning of students’ Other Learning Experience (OLE) hours. Entry deadline is 15 November 2010. Spread the word now!
  2. The EOC Raises Awareness on Sexual Harassment on University Campus

This online module offers students an opportunity to learn more about this topic and educate their peers. Since its launch, over 3,600 university students have used this on-line training module.
