Introduction

Starting from nine companies and schools participating in the first program in 2002 and being sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust since 2007, the School-Company-Parent (SCP) Program helps secondary students to connect to the commercial world and acquire an entrepreneurial mindset; it also enhances parents’ understanding of and communications with their children. Through participation in the program, companies play a part in the education of the future workforce. Over 810 pairs of school and company partnership have formed, benefitting over 26,000 students.

The new Young Entrepreneurs Development Council School-Company-Parent Program – Jockey Club InnoMind® commenced in September, 2017.  The program adds on the existing SCP Program by introducing STEM ESSENCE, i.e. qualities such as: curiosity, observatory, attention to details, creativity and persistence, students acquire through engaging in InnoMind® competition and related activities.  The program also extends its service to primary schools and young employees.
