支教地区与背景介绍请看此链接 义工地点介绍

Chinaway夏天义工项目创办于2008年四川汶川地震事件。义工的主要内容是组织美国高中学生到中国落后乡镇进行英语支教与举办公益中美文化夏令营。我们的教学会在学校教室,社区中心,儿童中心等地方进行,每班学生有20多名,每个美国学生每天都要讲课几小时课。教学内容主要是英语口语与美国文化,美国高中生是完全有能力胜任的,是真正做事的义工项目。

Chinaway义工项目的立意是:“帮助他人,提高自己”。每年参加Chinaway英语夏令营与培训课的中国孩子有几百人,这些农村孩子大都没有机会感受大城市的生活。Chinaway项目让中国乡村孩子接触地道的美国文化与英语口语,感受美国关爱社会的博爱精神,是关爱弱势群体惠及社会的慈善活动。

Chinaway Volunteer Program的最大特点是工作量非常大,非常锻炼人。10天大课堂的教学将极大的锻炼提高孩子的演讲能力,组织能力,管理能力,与孩子的中文水平。经过这种在现实中学习锻炼的磨炼,学生们可以很快学会讲课与课堂管理,这是Chinaway义工项目从举办以来就获得所有参加孩子与家长一致好评的原因。

如果你希望了解中国,关爱弱势群体,锻炼提高自己,发挥或挖掘自己的特殊能力,结交各地朋友,欢迎参加Chinaway Volunteer Program。两周的义工服务,你将得到80小时的义工时间。如果你参与编写教材,募捐,组织课程等额外活动将获得更多的义工小时。支教一般日程:

Chinaway Volunteer Program

The Chinaway Summer Volunteer Program was founded in 2008. The main objective is to organize American high school students to go to China's rural towns and villages to teach English and organize Chinese-American cultural summer camps. Our teaching will be held in school classrooms, community centers, children's centers, etc. There are more than 20 students in each class, and each volunteer will teach for a few hours a day. The teaching content is mainly spoken English and American culture. Despite their young age, American high school students have the ability and knowledge to make an impact on the lives of their Chinese counterparts, even if they do not know it yet.

The purpose of the Chinaway Volunteer Project is to “help others and strive for self-improvement”. There are hundreds of Chinese children attending the Chinaway English Summer Camp and classes each year. Most of these rural children do not have the opportunity to experience the life of a big city. The Chinaway program allows Chinese rural children to get in touch with authentic American culture and language, and feel the American spirit of compassion. It is a charity project that cares for disadvantaged groups to benefit society.

The most important aspect of the Chinaway Volunteer Program is the heavy and challenging workload. Teaching classes for ten days will greatly improve volunteers’ public speaking, organizational, management, and Chinese-speaking skills. Through real-life experience and practice, students can quickly learn how to teach and manage a class. It is why the Chinaway Volunteer Project has been well recognized by all participating volunteers and parents since it started.

If you want to learn more about Chinese culture, care for the disadvantaged groups, improve yourself, show your own special abilities (some you might not even know you had yet), make friends, we welcome you to join the Chinaway Volunteer Program. To put the icing on the cake, you will get 80 hours of volunteer time. If you are involved in writing textbooks, fundraising, courses and additional activities, you will get more volunteer hours. General schedule of teaching:

  • Day 1              Pick up from the airport
  • Day 2              full-day training and lesson preparation
  • Day 3-7           all day teaching
  • Day 8              Rest and other activities

Chinaway Program Multidimensional Think

做义工越多越好吗?

随着美国名校在录取学生时对学生关爱社会或社区服务元素的强调,华人孩子做义工的趋势持续高涨,有些孩子甚至每年做义工达400~500小时。但这有助于名校录取吗?

社区服务即义工的定义是干对他人有益的事而不要求报酬;做对社区有益的事,没有报酬,而且必须是非盈利的领域。
