Abstract

As a part of the Global Youth Leadership Program (GYLP), a 30-hour “Service Leadership” subject was provided to 48 undergraduate students studying at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) or Peking University (PKU). This study evaluated the subjective outcomes of the “Service Leadership” subject, including students’ views on the course contents, lecturers and perceived benefits from the course. A majority of students in the program showed very positive perceptions of the course content, lecturers and course benefits, with more than 85% of the students indicating that they were very satisfied with this subject and would suggest their friends to take the subject. As expected, the three domains of program effectiveness were significantly correlated amongst themselves, and these domains had different impacts on student overall satisfaction with the course as well as on student willingness to recommend this course to others and participate in similar courses again in the future.
