Falcon Programme

Every young person can soar to new heights

Our purpose

The Variety Falcon Programme is a unique, sustainable 2-tier youth development initiative providing local 16–21 year olds with personal and career development support, with high-impact mentoring at its core.
The Falcon Programme is one-of-a-kind in the range of factors and skills it addresses:

Mentoring

To support and guide Falcon participants on their career journey by providing mentoring with trained experienced mentors who are matched to the needs of the mentee.

Soft skills development

To increase the employability of Falcon participants at the start of their careers by providing a structured curriculum of skills and personal development and wellbeing training.

Industry exposure

To raise the aspirations of Falcon participants and increase their awareness of career options by providing access to potential employers, career fairs and industry talks.

Practical experiences

To increase the self-confidence of Falcon participants and practically apply their skills by providing access to internships, leadership training, volunteering opportunities and teamworking activities.

Networking

To develop the relationship management and networking capabilities of Falcon participants by providing opportunities for them to interact with employers, mentors and each other.

A 2-tier programme addresses the critical needs of this key stage of development:
1-Year Training

Series of classroom training, together with practical industry experiences and networking, to broaden their understanding
and horizons prior to many key decision-making during the
16-21 age years.

2-Years Mentoring & coaching
Customised 1-to-1 mentoring and group coaching as an in-depth career-life development support to youth aged 18–21 to prepare for successful transition to work life.

Branch-Out Programme: Young Falcons

A 1-year programme to help secondary school students develop soft skills and better understand the future of work.

We have added more partner schools to Young Falcon which was added in summer 2021. The Young Falcon program is for Secondary Form 4 – Form 5 students, during which they take part in soft skill development and career exploration activities. Upon successful completion, they can apply for the full Falcon Programme. Visits have been organised for the Young Falcons to facilitate their understanding of different commercial sectors in Hong Kong, and to enable them to experience various workplaces.

Partner Schools

I have learnt to persist, to give back to society and to adopt a positive attitude towards things and people. I have become more positive about HK. I used to believe that my academic results were not good enough for me to become a doctor or lawyer, and so I would be useless. The Falcon Programme has helped me understand there are many more pathways and possibilities. Now I know that when I work hard, and with my interests in mind, I could do well

I feel grateful to get to know my mentee, and we can learn from each other. I also got the chance to develop my soft skills, such as active listening. My mentee’s passionate character has reignited my own passion as well.
