Diversity Volunteer program in China
Without a doubt, one of the most effective ways to get to know local people and understand them is to mingle with them in their daily life, all the while making a lasting impact in the community. For those interested in giving back and getting involved with community service, Go Abroad China offers some of the most meaningful travel and volunteer experiences right here in China, fulfilling the needs of both locals in not so ideal situations and giving an valuable opportunity for anybody who would like to get involved in social improvement efforts.
Go Abroad China has for many years been contributing to the betterment of Chinese children living with special needs and disabilities, children in orphanages and those that attend poor schools for migrant children. All the above-mentioned groups of people benefit greatly from the volunteer work that Go Abroad China organizes for its program participants. As an international volunteer, your contribution will surely improve not only their situation physically, but more importantly in their psychological state of mind as opportunities like these are not very common for them. The memories are bound to last for a lifetime for all sides involved.
All of Go Abroad China’s volunteer programs can be combined with Chinese language classes. Your choice of housing can be a homestay , shared apartment or private apartment; cultural and social activities are always included in our program structure; guided tours are also integrated. Get on board and join our Volunteer in China program now for an inspiring experience.
Tuan - Australia Internship Program in Beijing
Living and working in Beijing really opened my eyes. The people are extremely nice and helpful. During work, even though there is a huge language barrier, my colleagues do try to communicate with me and the manager was able to organise me to learn from different departments. I was able to make new friends and visit many places in Beijing. Everyone from GAC are very helpful and supportive. Overall I am satisfied with the program. Read More

Chris - United Kingdom Internship Program in Beijing
My time in China has been extremely rewarding. When I arrived, the culture shock was immense but I quickly settled into Chinese life, thanks to Gina and the GAC team. My internship was exactly what I was looking for, and it gave me the opportunity to work in a fantastically social co-working space in the heart of Sanlitun SOHO, a cosmopolitan and refined area.

David - Australia Internship Program in Shanghai
Overall I enjoyed my experience with GAC. I was pleased with the amount of knowledge I learned and the new experiences I went through during my internship as a financial analyst at a finance company which GAC found on my behalf. The internship made me realize how fast things move in the finance industry and I feel it has prepared me well for the transition from university to the work force. Read More

The volunteer should be someone who enjoys working with children and has a sense compassion. The role requires our international participant to be ready to uplift the lives of the children through social games, close interaction, creating friendships and extending a helping hand to the staff for any daily needs that they have to meet.
