Chan Pak Hin(陳柏軒)  Tsang Chun-nim (曾俊念)

​

Ah Hin, joined the Breakthrough team for the 2010/11 season when he was 14. One of his close friends had got in to trouble with the police and joined Breakthrough under the Hong Kong Police Superintendent’s Discretion Scheme. After interview by a social worker, Ah Hin was assessed as also being at risk, having needed to repeat Form 1 at school and suffering from bad influences amongst his peers.

Ah Hin was invited to join alongside his friend and it was quickly found that he was a talented young goalkeeper with a love for football. Although he was quite shy at first, he quickly developed greater self-confidence and his esteem built week after week.
 
A few months later Ah Hin appeared in goal for the Breakthrough team at the Yau Yee League 2010-2011 6-a-side competition. His skill and bravery in goal against powerful adult players drew many admiring comments from opposing teams and astonishment when they learned he was only 14 years old.

By the end of the season Ah Hin had come to the attention of the South China Athletic Association and was recruited to their Under-15 youth team. This is a massive achievement for a boy from the Breakthrough programme as Hong Kong first division teams usually recruit from quite select sources.

With luck and continued hard work it is hoped that Ah Hin can continue to develop under their coaching into a first division footballer and who knows if he might even go further. But even without this opportunity, he has already shown a change in commitment to self-improvement and confidence in his ability to succeed.




柏軒,2010/11年度加盟奮進足球隊,當時他只有14歲。他有一位好朋友因為觸犯法例,在香港警司警誡計劃下參加了奮進行動。社工訪問完他後,柏軒仍然處於水深火熱之中,因為他要在學校重讀中一,同輩對他的不良影響,令他感到苦惱和困擾。

 

柏軒獲邀請和他的朋友一起參與奮進計劃,很快便有人發現他是一個具天賦的年輕守門員,而且他本身也熱愛足球。雖然一開始的時候,他比較害羞,但他很快就逐漸改善了自信心和自尊心。

 

幾個月後,柏軒在2010-2011年度6人足球友誼賽中出現,擔任奮進足球隊的守門員,面對着強大的成年球員,他守門時的技巧和勇氣獲得了很多比賽對手的讚賞,當對方知道他年僅14歲,都顯得非常驚訝。

 

賽季結束後,柏軒吸引了南華體育會的注意,並聘請他加盟15歲以下的隊伍。奮進計劃培育出來的一個男孩,取得了重大的成就。香港甲組足球隊通常也藉此挑選球員。

 

柏軒若是繼續努力,加上運氣,很有希望可以在南華體育會受訓,持續發展,繼而進入甲組足球隊,甚至難以估計他會否有更好的出路,但即使沒有這次機會,他已經明顯地自我改善,並有信心以自己的能力取得成功。

Chan Pak Hin (陳柏軒)

​Ah Nim joined Breakthrough in the 2008/2009 season when he was 15. He is the eldest son of a typical Hong Kong single-income working class family but was having trouble at school, failing subjects, lacking motivation and suffering from low personal esteem.

​ 

He came to the attention of the Mongkok Police school liaison sergeant via the school masters and was recruited in to the Breakthrough programme to provide him with the mentoring and support of peers, as well as opportunity to develop confidence and purpose.

 

Although having some football skills, Ah Nim did not immediately come to attention for that but instead really stood out from the other new recruits for his determination and effort in training and games. His commitment continued to grow as he responded well to the encouragement of the older boys and police mentors. By the end of the season Ah Nim had regained purpose and self-esteem to such an extent that he became a champion for Breakthrough, encouraging other at risk boys in his school to join the programme.

 The school recognized Ah Nim’s turn around by giving him the responsibility of a school prefect, where he continued to develop his confidence. Ah Nim has said that he personally felt that his communication skill, self-discipline, judgment and values have been greatly improved since joining Breakthrough.

 Although he has stood down from his prefect duties to concentrate on studying for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education in his final year of schooling, Ah Nim remains in Breakthrough and now assists the coaches and mentors, supporting the younger boys and leading warm-up exercises amongst them. Ah Nim was also one of the youngest players on the Breakthrough team to compete in the Yau Yee League’s 2010/11 6-a-side competition, which set him against adult players and, despite his age and size, competed with a huge heart and tremendous effort.

 俊念在2008/2009年度加入奮進行動,當時他15歲,他出身自典型勞動階層、單收入家庭,是家中長子,在校內成績差,為人消極且自尊心弱。

 透過校長的轉介,他引起了旺角警校一名警官的注意,並招收他參與奮進計劃,除了讓他得到耐心的教導和同輩的支持,也給予他一個改善自信和意志的機會。

 雖然俊念略懂一些足球技術,但這並沒有引起其他人的注意,反而,從新學員的訓練和遊戲中,他的果斷和努力令他鶴立雞群,得到師兄和警隊教官的鼓勵,他承諾會繼續改進。幾個月後,俊念已重拾自信,他的重大改變,讓他成為了奮進計劃的冠軍,他更鼓勵其他在他學校就讀的邊緣青年參加奮進計劃。

 學校為了對俊念的重大改變給予肯定,特意讓他成為學校領袖生,使他可以繼續提升自信,俊念個人認為,自從參加了奮進計劃後,他的溝通技巧、自律性、批判力和價值觀都有明顯改善。

 雖然俊念為了專心修讀香港中學文憑,在最後一年學校生活沒有擔任領袖生,但他現在仍然在奮進行動中擔任助教,協助教練和導師,帶領年輕的男孩做熱身運動。俊念也是2010/11年度6人足球友誼賽代表奮進足球隊中一名最年輕的球員,縱然比賽對手是成年球員,他卻撇開了自己的年紀和身型,帶著堅毅全情投入去比賽。
