Explore China & Work With Children
China Gap Year Program
Our gap year work project in China begins in Hangzhou, regarded as China’s most beautiful city and located just 40 minutes from Shanghai by bullet train.
After the month-long intensive Mandarin course, you will be able to work helping primary and secondary school children to read, write and speak English. You can also help with other extracurricular activities like art, drama, music and sports.
Become part of the community As part of a small team you will live in the middle of a community, learning about the local culture, engaging and connecting with people with lives vastly different to your own. It’s about sharing your skills and knowledge in a way that is useful to them.
Make an Impact We are passionate about the fact that, as well as having a fantastic, fun time, you can also make a real difference and we work with each participant individually to ensure you can use your skills to make a meaningful contribution.
Gap Year 100 We are committed to taking a maximum of 100 per year on our gap year programs. As a non-profit, AV’s focus is on providing both volunteers and our partner communities with the best experience possible. By limiting our numbers we ensure we can treat every applicant individually and place them where they can have the most impact.
AV programs are no ordinary gap year experiences: you will be part of a community of individuals with shared experiences and we are with you long after you get back from the project. “Once an AV, always an AV.”
