Strive and Rise

Cathay Pacific Group is continuing its longstanding commitment to youth development by supporting the Strive and Rise Programme, a collaboration between the Hong Kong SAR Government, the business sector and community, which pairs disadvantaged junior secondary school students with volunteer mentors who help them build self-confidence and develop their personal goals.

Cathay hosted 1,600 students and their mentors over a few months at Aviation Exploration Days, providing the opportunity to visit key facilities within the airport area, including the airline’s headquarters, Cathay City, Cathay Pacific Catering Services’ kitchens, and the Cathay Cargo Terminal. The Cathay Volunteers Team donated their time and expertise to support the programme as tour guides, and a number of Cathay staff across various departments joined the programme as mentors. A community flight took place as a finale of the full series of aviation exploration visits.
