11 Arlington St.Boston, MA 02116


In China, home of one of the world's oldest civilizations, United Planet volunteers experience the enormous diversity of this vast country. In spite of a rapidly growing economy, volunteers will see how China's complicated history has affected its status on the global stage. As a volunteer, you will live and work in Changsha, the capital and largest city in the Hunan province, with a population of more than 7 million. Changsha is known for its delicious, spicy fare and beautiful riverbanks. While ancient relics can be found in the 3,000-year-old city, modern skylines filled with skyscrapers are at every turn.

As a volunteer in China you will reside in the suburban Wangcheng district, connected to the rest of Changsha by public transit. You will build friendships with local elementary and middle school students and their families by helping teach English at schools in the area.

Great for volunteers that have a background in or who are studying education.

Possible volunteer projects include:
- Teaching English at a local elementary or middle school
- Opportunities for independent teaching, if interested and experienced

Please visit our website for more information about the projects.
