The Programme comprises 3 training modules conducted by trainers with diverse backgrounds that include social work scholars from CUHK, UBS professionals of organizational management, SCMP media experts and alumni with rich experience in community work. Since 2020, the training has adopted a hybrid model which allows both face-to-face interaction and flexibility when connecting with overseas business and social leaders.

The mentorship scheme aims to consolidate learning with daily leadership practice, allowing participants to discuss matters that concern them with their CUHK and UBS mentors. Starting from 2019, skill-based mentors have helped provide individual consultation on an ad-hoc basis. In 2021, six alumni of the Programme served as alumni mentors to inspire the cohort with their NGO expertise.

Proposal-writing and Final Pitching
All participants are required to create social projects on behalf of their agencies and pitch them to the adjudicating committee at the end of the learning journey. The committee awards winning projects among each cohort with a project implementation prize. Three to four other projects are recognized as outstanding projects. Since 2020, the Best Performance Award, co-selected by the adjudicating committee, trainers and peers, recognizes the one who has given the best pitching performance.
