Ya'an Teaching Program

7/4/2020 - 7/18/2020 雅安英文支教

In 2020, we will continue the our volunteers program of Education Aid in Yaan. Ya 'an is a poor county in chengdu. The vast majority of rural children there lack educational resources, and some of them can only read letters in English after primary school. Not to mention the information about the world, so support education ya 'an, care for others, so that rural children can also understand the outside world. 2020年我们将一如既往地推出到雅安的支教项目。雅安是成都地区的贫困县,。那里的广大乡村孩子非常缺乏教育资源,小学毕业一些孩子英语只会读字母。更不用说了解世界的信息,所以支教雅安,关爱他人,让农村的孩子也可以了解外面的世界。

Student volunteers will improve selves by supporting rural schools, teaching classes, and interacting with the children. The volunteers participating in the project should love teaching, be responsible, and learn quickly. They will practice their public speaking, organizational skills, social interaction, teamwork and leadership skills. Participating in social practice, with their own knowledge and expertise to serve the community, is a good practice of the ability to solve real-life problems when the volunteers prepare to enter the society. Traveling to China for this volunteer project will give the participants an in-depth understanding of China's social structure and culture, improve their Chinese language level, challenge your organizational skills, and develop their ability to adapt to life. 支教乡村学校,给那里的孩子上课,与他们交流,在帮助他人中,提高自己。参加项目的孩子要热爱教学,有责任心,善于学习,锻炼你的演讲能力,组织能力,社会交往,团队合作,领导能力。参与社会实践,用自己的知识,特长服务社会,是走向社会,解决现实问题的人生预演。暑假到中国支教,还能深入的感受中国的社会形态与人文情怀,提高你的中文水平,挑战你的组织能力,生活适应能力。

Tasks in the Education Aid Project: Introduce American culture to children living in rural areas and poor children living in urban areas; Teaching the children how to speak English; Getting to know the villages in the Chengdu area and learning how to communicate with local children; Visiting the home of children in rural areas to learn about the culture and issues of rural China; Touring local attractions to learn about Chinese traditional culture; Volunteering at the Panda Breeding and Research Base to learn how to protect pandas; 支教内容:给乡村孩子,城市贫民孩子介绍美国文化,给乡村孩子上英语口语课,深入了解成都乡村,与当地孩子交流,到农村孩子家参观做客,了解中国农村的文化,问题, 参观当地文化景点,了解中国传统文化,到熊猫基地做义工,了解如何保护熊猫.

Teaching Stay Behind Children in Tea Town ( 中文& English )

关爱茶乡留守儿童 ( 07/01/17 ~ 07/15/17名额20

2017年我们继续推出到四川茶乡关爱留守儿童项目。四川是中国的产茶大省,雅安是中国最早产茶的地理标志.由于雅安是山区,经济比成都平原地区落后,政府希望通过茶的生产让该地区富裕,人们安居乐业。但现实是茶生产了很多,茶农,当地茶企并没有富裕,还是有太多的父母要出去打工。乡村孩子需要了解外面的信息,暑假留守在乡里的孩子没有机会去旅游,上收费夏令营,也就不了解外面的世界。暑假给留守儿童开公益夏令营,上英语,上文化课,给他们介绍外面的世界,是非常有意义的。

让高中生自己全部管理夏令营,安排每天的课程与活动将大大的锻炼美国孩子的管理能力,表达能力,生活自理能力。到茶乡支教,还帮助美国高中生了解茶叶的种植,生产,思考如何让更多的人喜欢喝茶,因为茶是最健康的饮料。同时中华文明有它傲然于世的特点,到茶乡感受中华文明将有不同的感受。 

支教内容:

·         管理留守儿童夏令营;

·         给乡村孩子介绍美国文化;

·         给孩子上英语口语课以及其它文化课

·         到农村孩子家参观做客,了解茶叶生产.

·         参观当地文化景点,了解中国传统文化

·         到熊猫基地做义工,了解如何保护熊猫;

Program Details

Teaching Left-Behind Children in Tea Town (July 1, 2017 to July 15, 2016. Quota:20)

 We will continue the program “Teaching Left-Behind Children in Tea Town” this year. Sichuan is one of the largest tea producers provinces in China; Ya’an was the earliest place to begin the production of tea in China. However, the economy in Ya’an falls.

 The Chinese government wishes to relieve the poverty in the Ya’an by encouraging the planting of tea. In this way, residents will be able to live in a more prosperous and satisfying manner. However, although the locals have produced large amounts of tea, they have not been able to earn much profit from it. Because of this, many parents have to go out of town to work and earn money for their families.

 During the summer, their children have to stay in Ya’an. They have no opportunities to travel, attend summer camps, or in short, understand the outside world. It is important that the Chinaway volunteer program provides care for these children, while also opening a window for them to learn about the world outside Ya’an.

 Letting American high school students manage the summer camp themselves, arrange daily courses and activities should be very helpful to develop American students’ management, expression, and independent skills. Going to Ya’an will also allow American high schoolers to learn about how tea is planted and produced.

Thinking about how to let more people enjoy tea because tea is an extraordinary beverage with multiple health benefits. Also, the Chinese civilization has its unique characteristics, therefore learning Chinese culture in Ya’an will be very rewarding!

 Volunteer Content:

·         Manage Left-Behind children summer camp;

·         Introduce American culture to Left-Behind children;

·         Teach children English and other classes;

·         Visit local children’s home and learn about tea cultivation and production;

·         Visit local places of interest;

·         Volunteer at China Giant Panda Conservation Centre, learn how to protect giant pandas.

 Left-Behind children are young, most of them are primary school students, however there are also some middle school students. If some Chinese middle school students come to join the public welfare summer camp, they truly would like to gain some useful knowledge and experience. So our students should prepare to share about their high school lives, including the courses, afterschool activities, and any working experiences with the Chinese middle school students.

Hope you will enjoy your summer camp too! J

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。
