Community Development

Community Development

Through various community development programs, members identify social needs and issues, develop projects to improve the well-being of the community and thereby enhance awareness and sensitivity on community problems. With its good relationship with the Shatin District Office, District Board, Social Welfare Department (Shatin) and other community organizations, JCIST focus its community development projects on Sha Tin district, and sometimes also on the whole Hong Kong community.
