Jockey Club YouthCreate Series — Maker Education

This is a story of

growth and companionship

In this program, we united and partnered with the youth to engage in maker skills, to develop interest through learning and making. Through empathy and creativity, we strive to bring social impact to the community.

In this three-year YouthCreate series, MakerBay, as a Technical Partner, has been committed to bringing maker education and mindset to the next generation. Through technical training and co-create community projects, the youth and social workers have used the skills and mindset they have learned to create, and work together towards the goal of improving the community.

Three years have passed. With the joint efforts of social workers, young people and MakerBay, this project has come to a perfect end. But everyone is still connected after that. Through this program, we realized that maker education is about learning from each other, and understanding, through communication, the needs of youth centers and even the entire community. This way, we helped the community centers establish maker education, and make use of their creativity and knowledge of the community to create for the betterment of the community.

In three years, we have worked with 6 youth centers across the city,

paving the way for co-creation with the youth.

The youth were not in for a smooth ride, but they were never alone. They learned and made with their companions, gaining experience through trial and error, sharing the fruit of success together. Let’s hear their story.

“Together, we learn and mature”

               – Emily

“We are companions”

               – Nick

“Treasure new perspectives”

               – Samantha

Through this program, new youth stories have been born. Stories of growth, of community bonding, of bringing impact to community through making.
