Conrad Macao celebrates third annual Hilton Worldwide Global Week of Service

Community service is an integral part of Hilton Worldwide’s culture, and acts of volunteerism occur year-round across the portfolio of eleven distinct brands and more than 4,200 properties.

MACAO – In celebration of Hilton Worldwide’s third annual Global Week of Service, October 19 – 25, more than 50 volunteers from Conrad Macao, Cotai Central visited the local Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) of Macau on Sunday 19 October to offer some inspiration and support to teenagers in need. Community service is an integral part of Hilton Worldwide’s culture, and acts of volunteerism occur year-round across the portfolio of eleven distinct brands and more than 4,200 properties. Conrad Macao’s efforts are part of Hilton Worldwide’s week-long annual celebration of the company’s commitment to serving and enriching the communities where we live, work and travel. This year Hilton Worldwide participated in more than 3,000 hands-on service projects.
 
It is very important that we support our local community and to be able provide some guidance to the next generation in order for them to reach their full potential is fundamental to Hilton’s Travel with Purpose philosophy,” said Bede Barry, general manager, Conrad Macao. “If we can inspire just one of the teenagers to live their best life then we have made an impact.
 
The Young Men’s Christian Association of Macau was established in 1994 and serves local youngsters, children and their families. The association provides various social services aimed at strengthening local teenagers’ self-recognition and identity, improving their abilities of behavior control, and also helping them to develop a healthy personality and resist negative peer influences.
 
YMCA has cooperated with The Legal Affairs Bureau of MSAR Government since 2007 to operate the Lai Cheng Centre to offer temporary residential and supervising services. Management and team members from Conrad Macao visited the YMCA to speak to the youth and give some gifts. Later that same day, YMCA members visited Conrad Macao to see first-hand how the hotel operates and to hear about the hotel’s efforts to undertake sustainability and environmental practices. 
 
It is a great inspiration for our youth that Conrad Macao managers and staff have come to visit our centre. It provides an opportunity for the youth to see how organisations work and it shows that people care in the community, we hope that they then go on to live fulfilling lives and maybe one day get to work in the hospitality industry in the future,” said Ms. Grace Kuan, General Secretary of YMCA.
 
Global Week of Service is Hilton Worldwide’s largest annual volunteer service initiative and brings together Team Members from across Hilton Worldwide’s offices and hotel properties, helping to strengthen the company’s connections with its local communities and bringing Team Members closer together.
 
During Global Week of Service, Team Members are encouraged to share their personal stories of service and hospitality. Throughout the week, photos and stories will be posted at https://www.hiltonworldwide.com/serve, on the Hilton Worldwide Facebook page and on the Hilton Twitter account. 
 
In 2013, Team Members at more than 900 properties and offices completed more than 2,400 volunteer projects in 700 cities across the company’s global footprint. The projects focused on engaging Team Members and delivering on Hilton Worldwide’s commitment to Travel With Purpose by creating opportunities, strengthening communities, celebrating cultures and living sustainably. This year, the company aims to build upon this community engagement and is striving to complete more than 3,000 service projects.
