Volunteer to teach English to young Chinese student and brighten their future while also experience vibrant Chinese culture.

Qingdao, where the project is located, is one of the fastest growing cities in China. City graduates are hired for jobs outsourced from the US or created through tourism and other industries. But without good English, these jobs will remain elusive for fresh graduates. Even to secure seats in good universities and do other things, English has become very important to learn in China. Yet, many schools and colleges don't have experienced English teachers as there simply aren't enough teachers around. Our volunteers will teach in these schools and help young children get to grasp with English language.

Enroll in the project and be part of the school in their effort to improve young children. You'll find the experience fun and fulfilling and the children very enthusiastic to learn from an international volunteer.
