China is both a land of mystery and an archeological and cultural wonder. Volunteering on a service program is a unique and meaningful way to discover this fascinating nation - home to one-fifth of the world's population.
Working in three distinct metropolitan areas, volunteers on Global Volunteers service teams contribute to the educational development of youth, adults, teachers and also help care for at-risk babies in a children's home.
Our hosts in the cities of Xi'an, Kunming, and Haikou City need your help with educational and child care projects that put you directly in touch with average Chinese people in day-to day- situations. What's more, your service program fee supports these on-going work projects, so you know you're making a broad-based contribution.

1 testimonial about this trip
Reviewer: Judith O'Neil
"I am amazed at how quickly I am a part of it, and it is a part of me, at how fast I belong - my school, my attending teacher, my teammates, my teaching partner, my bright effervescent, eager, bubbly teenage students. Now they are not just statistics in a newspaper, they are faces I know and I think they will remain in my mind and heart forever."

Global Volunteers' unique philosophy of service ensures your work projects help advance the host community's current development vision and goals. Always serving at the invitation and under the direction of host community partners, each Global Volunteers team member works alongside local people, and personally contributes to needed project financing through their service program fee. Our long-term commitment to work in partnership on sustained community development projects enables you, in just a short time, to serve as a critical link in a chain of lasting community enhancements.
