Program overview

Love Volunteers offers the chance to experience an eye-opening placement in China. Placements are with children and young adults, some living in disadvantage situations, and the volunteer’s efforts (and mere presence) are enormously appreciated.

With no barriers to background or education, there is a place for any willing and caring individual as a volunteer in China. By making a contribution to the education of children in China, one has the opportunity to come to grips with a new culture, to form friendships and to give much needed help and support.

Volunteering in China brings both rewards and challenges. There are opportunities for you to acquire valuable teaching experience while really embracing the culture. There is profound satisfaction to be gained from knowing that communities and institutions in China have benefited from your contribution. From the “green city” of Zhengzhou to dynamic and diverse Shanghai, projects are available in a range of locations in this immense country. Also featured are Chang Xing Island, Cong Ming Island, and Su Zhou. Volunteers are frequently invited to their students’ houses to dine with them, and are often invited to travel with local families.

China, over the last hundred years, has had a number of economic problems, and its socially disadvantaged groups still struggle greatly to enjoy the basic requirements for a satisfying life. With competent, dedicated staff on hand, volunteers can be certain of being usefully deployed whilst being fully supported.
