The K-12 outreach program provides volunteers from Wayne State University to make visits to southeastern Michigan schools. In conjunction with teacher requests, volunteers help teach basic aspects of Chinese language and culture. Teachers may fill out a request form (see above link) to indicate preferred dates, times, and activities. Requests must be limited to 3.5 hours from arrival to and departure from the school.
WSU volunteers offer a Chinese Immersion Obstacle Course for students with one or more years of Chinese. In pursuit of small prizes, students must complete given tasks - communicating only in Chinese - as they visit simulated airports, banks, taxis, restaurants, hotels, train stations, department stores, etc.
Due to popular demand, each school may request a maximum of two visits per semester with a maximum visit time of no longer than 3.5 hours. Additionally, no more than four visits will be made to any given school district in a given semester. Our outreach team will make every effort to accommodate requests, but cannot guarantee availability.
