Are you looking for something to do during the last week of August? Would you like to join Stepping Stones as a volunteer and also travel out to the Chinese countryside? Why not join us on a rural tour from 22-26 August to teach English to “left-behind” children in a village outside of Yiwu in Zhejiang province?
As a volunteer on a Stepping Stones rural tour you will have the opportunity to be surrounded by the beauty of Zhejiang mountains, experience Chinese culture first-hand, while giving back to the local community by teaching English to the underprivileged students of the area. This is a week-long tour where volunteers will deliver fun and interactive English lessons to students at our partner “left-behind” children school. The trip will involve 3.5 days of voluntary teaching and a half-day excursion in the countryside.
The tour costs RMB 2,000 per participant, which includes:
- Round-trip train to Yiwu
- 24/7 staff support
- Pre-departure preparatory training and workshop
- Local transportation
- Stepping Stones t-shirt
- Volunteering certificate
This tour is designed for adult volunteers. Any volunteers between 15-17 years old must be accompanied by their parent or guardian, who will take full responsibility for them during the tour.
If you would like to sign up for our next rural tour or would like further information about Stepping Stones’ rural tours, you can contact Morgan Banaszek, firstname.lastname@example.org.
