The GYM initiative pairs first and second-year undergraduate students with our alumni who are aged 30 and below. These young mentors are adept at understanding their mentees’ concerns from a peer’s perspective and offering helpful insights about possible solutions and career options.

HKLSS' objective is to encourage conversation, co-learning and well-being while simultaneously creating space for them to explore innovative and collaborative ways of solving issues they have been facing.
