ChinaWay Volunteer Program
Opportunities for American students to volunteer and intern in Mainland China
All Chinaway 2018 summer programs are finished with great success, with The President's Volunteer Service 2018 Gold Award having been awarded as in previous years. Sincere thanks to all volunteer students, parents, and families who participated in and supported these wonderful activities:
In 2018, we will continue the our volunteers program of Education Aid in Dujiangyan. Dujiangyan has inherited the ancient Chinese civilization and has benefited from the spirit of world volunteerism during the reconstruction from 2008 earthquake damages. A lot of children living in rural areas still lack of educational resources and lack a channel to connect with the world. We will teach these children and enable them to learn about the outside world.
Hunan PingJiang Volunteer Teaching Program
PingJiang County is located 100 kilometers away from Changsha City and YueYang City, upstream on the MiLuo river, and a major origin of Chu culture. It is one of Chinese counties in poverty. The fiscal poverty results in lack of resources on public education and full-time qualified teachers. For example, Some basic requirements of music education by the State Education Department can not be fulfilled. Children in rural areas also do not have the opportunity to visit big cities and foreign countries.
The Boy/Girl Scout activity in the United States is an important non-governmental education training program that exercises children's leadership, hard-working attitude, hands-on ability, self-discipline, teamwork, responsibility and caring for society. Boy/Girl Scout activities in USA are popular for K-12 students and very helpful for students to become future leaders. More Chinese children nowadays are willing to undergo a "American-style" scout training and welcome the assistance from American experienced high school students
