With its glistening skyscrapers and crowded streets, Hong Kong is one of the most developed cities in the world. Yet hidden under this façade of wealth and glamour is a sizeable number of young people who are directionless in life: a 2012 research found a remarkable number of youths do not know what they want to achieve in life and only 12% are very confident that they will be to achieve their dreams.
AIVR is here to facilitate the youth change. With your contributions, AIVR is aiming to purchase a Volkswagen T2 camper van which will be used for providing outreach life coaching services. With the riding of this classic vehicle, AIVR will be able to help young people escape from the repressive confines of the city and recharge in some of Hong Kong’s best parks and natural attractions. As they enjoy the change in scenery and take a breath away from the stresses of urban living, our qualified coaches will co-partner with them, listening to their fears and ambitions, empowering them to discover their calling and enhancing them in their pursuit of their passions and dreams.
AIVR can’t help every lost youth in this city find their direction. We insist that, with your assistance, we can spark a lightbulb in every person that comes on board the U-巴 coach and light up the path of as many as possible.
AIVR is a social enterprise that provides life coaching services for young people from a low income or ethnic minority background. Established only in 2017, we have already earned significant social collaboration from organisations such as Caritas HK and HK Children and Youth Services. We were visited by the Secretary of Development in December 2017 and was given the Friend of Social Enterprise Award by the HK Home Affairs Bureau.
About life coaching
Life coaching is a process where coaches partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative manner that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. As a professional member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), we employ music busking and micro-film production as two main enablers to engage with young people. We combine these activities with the life coaching process, thus enhancing youth aspiration, innovation, and vocational fulfilment, as well as refreshing their goals of life.
