Student & Corporate Groups – Online Program


Volunteering Program

Stepping Stones welcomes student and corporate groups to volunteer to teach English or other subject(s) to disadvantaged rural children in China through the internet.

  • 10-week program during both Spring & Fall semesters. (i.e., once a week)
  • Training & support provided by Stepping Stones
  • Activity: Teaching through the internet (once a week) to around 15-20 children per class
  • Volunteers: Ideally it should be the same volunteers every week, but rotation between volunteers is acceptable as long as there is hand-over between the volunteers from week to week and that each volunteer teaches at least 1-2 times per month, to maximize consistency, continuity and teaching quality.
  • Location: Classes will be conducted through the internet from the volunteer’s home base. Children will be located in rural schools in Henan, Sichuan, Anhui, Jiangsu or Hunan.
  • Time: School-year – October to December & March to June
  • Project cost: TBD
