O F F I C I A L FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ) FOR SOC.CULTURE.HONGKONG PART III - GLOBAL VOLUNTEER DATABASE If you have any questions regarding addition/deletion/modification to this FAQ, please contact Sandra Chan at "email@example.com" Your comments will be appreciated. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TABLE OF CONTENTS: 2000) GENERAL INFORMATION: 2001) What is Global Volunteer Database(GVD)? 2002) Why do we need GVD? 2003) Who are GVD volunteer and what responsiblity do they have? 2004) What are the guidelines for using GVD? 2005) What is the ultimate goal for GVD? 2006) Who is in charge of the GVD? 2007) How can I obtain a copy of GVD? 2008) How can I become a volunteer? 2009) Can I take a look at the lastest GVD? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2000) GENERAL INFORMATION: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2001) What is Global Volunteer Database(GVD)? GVD (Global Volunteer Database) is a compiled list of SCHK netters who are willing to provide information through e-mail for others living in other parts of the world. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2002) Why do we need GVD? Every now and then, we all need some kind of help and support from people in another city or country. Many of us might seek information on a degree program in a university located thousands of miles away, find our long lost classmates in another city, or simply need travel-information of another country. We have all seen postings after postings of that nature in SCHK--wouldn't it be nice if we knew someone who would be willing to provide us with insightful, first-hand information? This is what GVD is all about. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2003) Who are GVD volunteer and what responsiblity do they have? GVD consists of SCHK netters from around the world who are willing to help others. Each volunteer has expressed interests in answering questions pertaining to their alma mater, or the place where he/ she resides. It is a pure voluntary activity, which means that the volunteer will not charge a fee for his/her service. That also means that they might choose not to help out due to time and other personal constrains. For those who intend to become a volunteer, please note that the information given by you will be made available to the public. In other words, everyone will have access to the information you have submitted. Should you chose not to reveal certain information, please exclude them from the application. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2004) What are the guidelines for using GVD? There's none. We, the organizers of GVD, hope to give the highest degree of flexibility to the volunteers and those who use the service. Therefore, we leave it to them to decide what they what to make of GVD. We also do not wish to put a restriction on who can use GVD. In theory, everyone who has access to this compiled list can make use of the service. At this point in time, we have chosen an electronic-medium (namely Internet) to distribute GVD. Should there be a demand for other means of distribution, we will glad extend the service. Although we do not wish to put too much control over GVD, we believe it is essential to set some guidelines. The following list of guidelines should be understood and respected by those who use and take part in this project: 1) No one should use GVD as a means to advocate personal/ political propaganda of any kind; 2) Use of GVD for any commercial purpose would require seeking a prior approval from the volunteers; 3) Each volunteer (and those who use the service) should show mutual respect, regardless of one's background. Humiliation, discrimination, and person-attacks of any kind shall not be accepted. 4) People who volunteer to submit their information/ addresses, though have the right to withdraw their support at any time, should realize that their information will be distributed through many different channels all over the world. Hence, it will be almost impossible to wipe out one's information entirely once they are submitted. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2005) What is the ultimate goal for GVD? Thousands of students leave Hong Kong every year to pursue advance degree in US, Canada, UK and Australia. A majority of them do not know what to expect when they get on the plane. Our mission is to make GVD available to various student-advisory organizations, namely the Heng Seng Student Advisory Council for Overseas Studies, the Institute of International Education in Hong Kong and so on. Our volunteer in HK will physically go into the centers to introduce GVD, and perhaps to give the counselors a lesson on how to use e-mail to contact our volunteers. The Hong Kong Student Association from every university and college around the world SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE volunteer in the GVD. It will help Hong Kong Students around the world to communicate better in event that we have not foreseen. This will become an important step in moving SCHK from a discussion only forum to an organized global network for Hong Kong people. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2006) Who is in charge of the GVD? Sandra Chan is in charge of GVD. Sandra is responsible for maintaining the list. You may send e-mail to Sandra at: firstname.lastname@example.org -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2007) How can I obtain a copy of the GVD? A copy of the lastest GVD will be available in the monthly posting of SCHK FAQ. If you REALLY cannot wait, pleae contact Sandra Chan. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2008) How can I become a volunteer? It is very easy. What you need to do is to fill in the form below and mail it to Sandra Chan "email@example.com" and you will become an official GVD volunteer. ------------ FORM BEGIN ------------- Country: /* Country you are in */ State/Province: /* State/Province name */ City: /* City where you reside */ Orgn: /* Organization/School/Company name */ Dept: /* Department of study */ Name: /* Your name here */ Addr: /* e-mail address */ HKSA? /* Is there a Hong Kong Student Assocation in your school ? */ Note: /* Comment/notes/famous quote :) */ ------------ FORM END ------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2009) Can I take a look at the lastest GVD?
