吳漢平、馬風華(Hanping WU & Fenghua MA)





High school student volunteer activities have become a fairly mature tradition in Hong Kong, Macao, and many developed countries in the world. With the advancement of China’s socio-economic development and the introduction of volunteer activity programs, more and more high school students are participating in community service and volunteer work, although overall such development is still at an initial and exploratory stage. Using the volunteer activities carried out by high school students affiliated to Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, in the past three years as a case study, this paper summarizes the obstacles and difficulties of implementing high school student volunteer programmes in the Mainland from the perspectives of student attitudes, social environment, planning, and operation. Solutions to the obstacles will also be discussed.
