Volunteer/ Fundraise

Every contribution is ever too small. Join us in our mission to educate and empower young people in Hong Kong to look after their mental health. 

Our community was built on the efforts and dedication of students who shared their experiences and spoke up on what support they needed from their society. Together, they collaborated to shape the resources and content you see on this website today. We invite you to become a part of Coolminds too, and hope that you will join us in our mission to spread awareness, advocate and show support for youth mental health

There are many ways you can get involved. Coolminds is an initiative that is truly by students, for students. We are always looking for volunteers (students and adults) to support the various projects we have. There are some opportunities listed below to get involved in at present, and please do not hesitate to contact us at hello@coolmindshk.com to learn more. We look forward to hearing from and working with you.
