- Volunteer teaching opportunities!
Make a difference and help the orphans learn English! 1. Meet up time: 8:30AM Exit 2, Nanjing West Rd. Station, Line 2 2. Meet up time: 9:10AM Exit 16, Xujiahui Station, Line 1,9,11 3. Meet up time: 9: 50AM Exit 1, Zhongcun Rd. Station, Line 9 (You can pick a time and arrive there on time! My friend, or I will pick you up there.) We're heading to the orphanage in Minhang together to see if we can help or anything. These orphans are going to be adopted by American Families but they speak no English. The Children's Welfare Centre is looking for volunteer teachers to help their English. (Preferably long term volunteers, but we try our best.) Time is negotiable, just one hour every week! So my friend and I decided to organise a tour to the centre (The meeting is actually made for 10:00AM near Zhongcun Rd. Station), we can all see what's going on there and what volunteers can do! After the tour to the centre, we'll drop by Qibao old town (a famous scenic spot) for some snacks and sightseeing! Woot! Woot! Estimate time back to town: 16:00 ^^ If you'd like to join me, please RSVP the event and msg the organiser (Lily) the time you'd like to meet up! I assure you that this will be a fun and rewarding experience!
