Deadline: March 15, 2007.

The Rural China Education Foundation (RCEF) invites applications to its
Volunteer Teaching Program 2007. Volunteers contribute to the quality of
education in rural China by developing tailored curriculum and teaching
summer classes to village children.
What: Teams of 4-8 volunteers spend two weeks teaching student-centered
and interactive classes to primary and middle-school-aged village children.
The classes are designed to inspire creativity, independent thinking, problem-
solving skills, and joy in learning. Subjects include Art, Speaking Skills,
Theater Games, Hands-on Science, Community Research, Health, Philosophy,
Math, Special Classes, and Oral English. Volunteers take an active role in
developing teaching materials and organizing classes in their respective
villages. Volunteers will live in villagers’ home and have the opportunity
to organize community-wide activities and undertake visits to their students’
Read about past teaching experiences at www.ruralchina.org.
When: July 15 - August 8, 2007 (tentative). All volunteers receive six days
of training in Beijng prior to village teaching trips. During training,
volunteers will hear from rural development experts and meet like-minded
young volunteers from across China and abroad. Volunteers then separate
into teams to teach in different villages for two weeks. Following the village
trips, the volunteers reunite in Beijing for two days of evaluations.

China must cover their own airfare and miscellaneous in-country expenses,
which are estimated at around USD 200. Financial aid is available for most
volunteers from Mainland China. RCEF can provide references and support
for admitted volunteers who apply for their own funding through other organizations.
How to Apply: The application form is online at www.ruralchina.org.

to remove volunteers who do not participate fully and consistently in the
mandatory preparation activities.
About Us: RCEF is an international non-profit organization established in
2004 by a group of overseas Chinese young professionals. RCEF’s vision
is to promote the life opportunities of young people in rural China and
the socioeconomic development of their communities through education. Unlike
many other organizations in this field, RCEF emphasizes the “software”
of education: quality and relevance of teaching contents and methods. Volunteer
Teaching Programs were held in 2005 and 2006, with 16 and 32 participants
respectively, from seven countries in total. Reports and photos can be found
