[Newly Established] Customs Youth Leader Corps Recruits Members
The new youth uniformed group “Customs Youth Leader Corps” (the Corps) established under the Customs and Excise Department’s youth programme “Customs YES” is now recruiting members. It aims to help members boost their self-confidence and develop team-oriented leadership skills through disciplinary training, regular assemblies and a variety of education-oriented activities, thereby grooming them to become distinguished youth leaders in the community.
Diverse training and activities cover knowledge of various areas
The Corps offers monthly assemblies covering a wide variety of training and activities about foot drills, life skills, personal growth, community services, civic education and Customs work.
Annual “Summer Training Camp” will be organised during which participants will undergo training in discipline, body fitness, parade and leadership and attend talks and join visits to learn about the work areas of Customs and the legislation enforced by the department. Sharing sessions and workshops of various themes will also be held to help participants know themselves better and establish a direction for their personal development.
