"Be a Government Official for a Day" Programme 2021
The “Life Buddies” Mentoring Scheme launches the “Be a Government Official for a Day” Programme 2021. The programme, to be held this August, will offer the opportunity for selected students to shadow a senior government official on the job for a day to gain hands-on experience of an official's work and a better understanding of the Government's operation. It also aims at providing officials a chance to share with students their work experience while learning about students' insights on different issues, their life goals and future plans. The job shadowing process will also help inspire students to develop positive values, multi-perspective thinking, strive to realise their potential and seize opportunities for upward mobility.
The “Be a Government Official for a Day” programme was first launched in the summer holiday of 2018. In view of the enthusiastic response and positive feedback to the programme, the Chief Executive announced in the 2018 Policy Address that the programme will be expanded to include more senior officials and benefit more students.

1. Orientation Session – 4 August 2021
2. Job Shadowing – a working day within 9 to 20 August 2021
3. Debriefing Session – 24 August 2021
