Summer Service Learning Program in Rural China

Since 2006 Wayne State University has partnered with Tsinghua University and individual donors to offer this summer service learning program in rural China. By traveling to remote regions and providing K-12 students with opportunities to learn and practice English, volunteers have inspired rural Chinese students to study English and other subjects included in the national college entrance exam. Five to seven Chinese students are paired with two to three American volunteers and assigned to rural schools throughout China. Volunteers spend 10-12 days at their respective sites and three days in Beijing before and after their journey to the countryside. The accompanying class, CHI 3990, requires readings, journals, and a qualitative research project.. Some financial aid is available for participants who complete coursework.
This year's program will take place from July 9 (leaving July 8) to July 29, 2017. New application forms will be posted soon.
