The DST of HKCS had organised the third cohort of “Moving Up”, a systematic training series which are designed to engage youth by interacting with animals, from April to August 2017.
During the four-month training, youth were given the opportunities to explore the animal-related industry by experiencing various job positions in the fields of pet grooming, animal hotel, rehabilitation, nutrition, and palliative care for animals, etc. All experience helped enhance their motivation and encourage them to be less resistant to try different new things; young people had also uncovered their positive characteristics at the same time.
After joining the job exposure activities, they were invited to have short-term internship by considering their own career interests. By knowing how the industry really works, the attitudes, knowledge, and skills that they have learnt have facilitated them to set up personal goals and initiate new plans.
We are now recruiting new trainees for the fourth cohort which will begin in November 2017. Interested young people are welcomed to join the animals experience day. For more information, please see the poster below.
