Would you like to travel the world and explore more unknown cultures and countries? Connect with the community, connect to the world, meet more friends with unique backgrounds and stories? Explore yourself as an individual and discover the hidden exceptional talents within you?

The Jockey Club Glocal Hero Action Program enables our youth to unleash their unlocked and unique potential in an empowering environment. Funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Trust, VolTra has organised the flagship programme of “Jockey Club Glocal Hero Tournament” that aspires to nurture the social responsibilities of future leaders. 

Through a series of social missions, design thinking workshops as well as local and overseas workcamps, the programme hopes to instil a sense of global citizenship into the mindset of the youth participants to inspire their curiosity, empathy as well as local and global awareness.  Participants are encouraged to initiate innovative social projects to inspire change from the ground up through forming teams to take part in various community experiential tasks and to gain awareness of local communities and their respective social issues. 

Over the past three years, more than 200 special citizens have visited Iceland, Kenya, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Japan, with the newly added locations such as North Korea, Mexico and Mongolia and more, encouraging participants to explore the world at the same time they explore the potential possibilities of themselves!
