Starting from nine companies and schools participating in the first program in 2002 and being sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust in 2007-2021, 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 1,000 pairs of school and company partnership was formed, benefitting over 30,000 students.
