You've got HK$2,000 to spend at an auction. The list of items to bid for include: your very own desert island; a maid who will do your cooking and cleaning; a credit card with an unlimited budget; an adventurous life; a successful job. And that's just five of them. There are 26 of these items, including being self-confident, knowing yourself, and being famous. You have to bid against others to decide what's important in your life. The exercise - using Monopoly money - was carried out at a CV career workshop by young people last Saturday. It was part of the Pay It Forward and Slam Dunk Basketball Challenge programme of the Changing Young Lives Foundation, one of the 27 beneficiary charities of the Operation Santa Claus (OSC) fund-raising campaign this year. The OSC is a charity campaign co-organised by RTHK and the South China Morning Post. The Changing Young Lives Foundation's programme includes basketball games, but the players also have to take part in voluntary work for the elderly or other groups that need their help. This way the participants have fun and feel good about themselves after helping the needy. Many of these children come from broken homes or poor backgrounds, while some are new arrivals from the mainland. The weekly CV workshops are for teenagers who have already been in the scheme for a while. One participant put his hand up for an 'adventurous life' and offered the full HK$2,000. Others were more conservative with bidding starting at HK$200. The workshop was for those aged between 14 and 16. One boy said he wanted to be a pilot, and two girls said they hoped to be a social worker and beautician. 'The workshop lets the children know what kind of people they are - whether they are artistic or like physical or office work,' said Marcia Aw of the Changing Young Lives Foundation. 'The career adviser finds out what they like and then suggests what lessons they should take.' Felix Lau Tze-pan, 14, a Form Three student from Yuen Long, said: 'I'm enjoying it [the workshop]. I get to know what's out there and I can find out what I want to do in life.' Felix wants to be an interior designer. Emily So Hoi-ching, 14, from Tseung Kwan O, also said she enjoyed the day. She is keen to do voluntary work in a correctional centre, and hopes to become a social worker.
