The Chinaway Volunteers Program is a summer volunteer program that has been running for 15 consecutive years. The program's slogan is "Helping Others, Improving Yourself". Over the past 15 years, the program has not only helped children in rural areas of China to learn spoken English and American culture, but also helped them present Chinese culture in English. The program not only enhances the Chinese language proficiency and public speaking skills of American students, but also fosters their leadership abilities and expands their global perspectives. As a result, a majority of program participants go on to enroll in highly-ranked colleges in the United States.
Chinaway has been organizing volunteer teaching activities online for the past three years. With the pandemic now behind us, we will resume the volunteer teaching in-person in China. However, given the current circumstances, we will also reserve some spots for online teaching to make it easier for students to participate and to increase the flexibility of the program's activities.
This year program will be in Dujiangyan, Chengdu, China in June and July of 2023. The detail time and work arrangement will be announced later. In addition to the traditional popular activities, such as English language exchanges with local students, experiencing as a panda breeder; this year's volunteer program will feature involvement in various Chinese summer activities, as well as the opportunity to teach in a classroom or assistant in the summer activities. Chinese summer activities are diverse and may include exploring ancient Chinese culture, studying on the ancient Shu (Si Chuan) civilization, engaging with fields like engineering, horticulture, and weaving, delving into music and the arts, and acting as a museum guide etc.
The classes you will teach are not limited to spoken English but may also cover topics such as public speaking, painting, research, and create PowerPoint presentations. Additionally, you will guide Chinese students in small projects and participate in youth activities focused on China's new rural development. Your role will include leading Chinese children in promoting and explaining the cultural relics and history of Dujiangyan in English. These tasks will require you to utilize not only your English abilities, but also other skills such as painting, design, research, and performance. This diverse experience will provide you with the opportunity to learn about unique subjects such as archaeology, hydraulic engineering, and modern agriculture, which can be valuable for future college applications and personal development.

Due to the special circumstances this year, the project arrangement is relatively late, and we are accepting both online and offline teaching applications for the first time. Therefore, please read the instructions carefully when signing up as the project arrangement will be adjusted based on the number of students who apply. We welcome younger children to participate in the Chinaway Volunteers/Summer Project as students, and if they are capable, we will assign them tasks. If they are not ready, there is no pressure, they will have prepared for future volunteer projects.
