Chinese Summer Camp Volunteering Service Camp

Community Service & Hospital Volunteering Program in China

 
 

40-50 Hours of Community Service

Our project will be volunteering in a Chinese local famous hospital. Volunteer activities vary based on what is needed. Participants will receive a training session from the hospital at the beginning of the program. Then you will work closely with the local volunteer team on various tasks to help patients. You will also have the opportunities to prepare and participate in various meaningful events organized by the hospital.

This program is dedicated to students worldwide who are seeking to fulfill the community service hour portion of their graduation requirements and/or build a resume in favor of university application. It is an extraordinary opportunity to gain volunteering experience abroad, as well as profound knowledge into another culture. You will learn new skills while helping others, develop spirit of solicitude and team work.

At the conclusion of the program, an official certificate recognizing 40-50 community service hours worked will be granted to participants by the host hospital.
