Engel & Völkers Hong Kong Partner with Community Service Program, Project Share, for the Second Year
HONG KONG – For the second year in a row, Engel & Völkers Hong Kong will host two students nominated by Project Share as interns this summer. Through Project Share, Engel & Völkers seeks to address the issues of the widening social divide and to connect and empower disadvantaged youth in Hong Kong.
“We are proud to be able to serve the Hong Kong community in this way,” says Chris Liem, Owner and Principal of Engel & Völkers Hong Kong. “Although these students come from disadvantaged areas, we believe they can have bright futures. Working with us and building an understanding of the skills needed in any professional environment is a fundamental start.”
Through this partnership, Engel & Völkers Hong Kong helps youth from lower-income and disadvantaged areas develop confidence and soft skills such as communication, teamwork and accountability. This unique opportunity to work and learn in a professional environment encourages students to think about their future opportunities and careers; to create meaningful relationships between mentors and students; and essentially to help them create a better future for themselves.
The students will work with Chris Liem and his team of experienced agents who have volunteered to be mentors. Their previous years’ work with students from Project Share has been highlighted in Singtao, Hong Kong Economic Times and Hong Kong Commercial Daily as providing a nurturing but professional environment that helps youth improve their core skills in communication, confidence and leadership.
