The CPB committee will continue to reduce the number of VIA hours required down to 20 hours, under the Community Care badge requirements, for the 1st half of 2021, subject to the following conditions:
Cadets must be graduating students (Sec 4 and 5) this year.
For other non-graduating cadets, they must have possessed the Total Defence (Gold) badge, as well as the Deputy Chief Commissioner's Badge at the time of Community Care badge application and are left with this one badge to achieve the Chief Commissioner's Badge.

SUBMISSION OF SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS
From 2021, all schools must use the following standard template to provide details on the VIA / community services hours, completed by each cadet.
VIA / Community Service Records Template (Recommended to use for submission together with individual school VIA Certificate of each student)
This is to allow CPB committee to go through the badge application and the VIA activities done by the students easily, and hence reduce the lead time required to process the badge applications.
Schools should ensure that the completed VIA / community service hours are also recorded timely onto the schools cockpit / system, and added to the students' individual VIA records / certificate.
RECOGNISED VIA / COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTIVITIES
In order to provide schools with the list of activities that are recognized for this badge, we have prepared the list for your reference. Do refer to the list from time to time for any updates.
The CPB Committee will update whenever there are new activities that are recognized upon receiving new applications from schools (and discussions made with the teachers / officers).
