ExCEL

ExCEL stands for: Express, Connect, Educate, Lead.

This is a new programme for 2016, funded by Operation Santa Claus, targeting young people from Ethnic Minority backgrounds who face multiple inequalities. Participants develop the skills and knowledge needed to create culturally appropriate drug awareness information and decide how best to promote that to their peers.

Participants learn life skills including peer support, resistance strategies and self-confidence and increase their awareness around risks and effects of common drugs. Outside trainers share knowledge and technical skills around developing campaigns and effective social media or other messaging. Participants then put these together to develop sustainable messages for their peers that are positive, supportive and aim to reduce drug use and its associated risks. The campaigns and resources developed will be promoted in the school and the whole school community will benefit from them. Peer supporters will be recruited from the first programme and work with participants from future cohorts on this programme.

ExCEL aims to engender a culture of peer support and positive messaging for at risk young people in a number of deprived districts around Hong Kong. We are delivering ExCEL in 4 schools in 2016-17 and will work with 2 more schools in 2017-18.
