Young Members Group
YMG Committee was inaugurated on 21 October 2011. The first YMG was formed by students from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and fresh graduates from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU). The provisional student chapter of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) was formed in April 2013.
Young Members Group (YMG) is a platform to gather young persons and students to organize activities in line with our missions. In these few years, YMG has been successfully developed and completed several self-financed engineering-based service trips in the Mainland China and Cambodia. There are 2 major teams in YMG, which are (i) YMG Training Team, (ii) Student Chapters. Several workshops, training sessions and team building camps were organized by YMG in 2016-17 for both young members and students.
YMG is also responsible for developing and mentoring student chapters, in which students are coming from several local universities in Hong Kong. We currently have formal / provisional chapters in The University of Hong Kong (HKU), The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HKPolyU). Student members are able to organize activities through student chapters, or participate in projects and activities organized by EWB-HK.
