Social Entrepreneur Series – Teach for all, Teach4HK [Education and Learning]

Social Entrepreneur – Arnold Chan What makes Arnold Chan, a straight-A top student, quit his million-dollar job in an investment bank and change career path to starting a social enterprise to help children from grassroots families? It is the belief of "education changes destiny". After joining a brief summer stint in Beijing, Arnold was overwhelmed by the innovative idea of enlisting university graduates to serve in schools with underprivileged students. The fellow teachers can learn from the uncommon experience while the students are given role models to follow and be motivated to realise their full potential. Arnold then teamed up with a group of enthusiastic and passionate young leaders to set up Teach4HK, following the model of Teach for America. Teach4HK offers a 1-year fellowship programme to university graduates who will serve full-time in schools. While the children will directly benefit, Arnold hopes that a greater impact can be attained when the fellow teachers, with experience in teaching, will take education into account to make a difference whatever their future career will be.   Innovative Venture – Teach4HK The innovative venture mentioned above is funded by the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund and assisted and supported by the Fund’s intermediaries in project implementation.  The details of the innovative venture are as follows: Name of Organisation: Teach for Hong Kong Foundation Limited Service nature: Education and Learning Beneficiary group: Children and Youth Project type: Start-up Intermediary Programme: Impact Incubator What is Social Entrepreneur Series?
