This program is initiated and organized by Tsinghua University, Beijing, China from 2006. A total of 1,741 students and 250 faculty members from Tsinghua University and 545 students and faculty members from other regions and countries’ universities, have been dispatched in teams, to rural counties in the past eight years.

Every summer, 180 Tsinghua volunteers and 120 volunteers from other regions and countries, who show a sincere commitment to charity work were recruited to join the Program. Successful applicants will be dispatched in 30 teams and perform their service in 30 counties throughout various locations in rural China. Each team will consist of one Tsinghua teacher, five Tsinghua students, four non-Tsinghua volunteers. Volunteers can provide diversified services to the local students in those rural counties, including English teaching, social survey conducting, lectures and intercultural communication exercises.
