Summer Camp Volunteers
Yu: The PEACH
foundation creates a mutually enriching experience for both young
underprivileged teenagers from rural China as well as over privileged Chinese
Americans. The success in the volunteer experience is reflected in the high
return rate for volunteers as well as a long list of success stories from
students who have been able to achieve economic mobility. There are two parts
to the aid PEACH provides its dependents. First, there is financial
assistance focusing on a single message, “stay in school.” The second is a
unique camp experience where American and more privileged Chinese families
come to give open ended lessons to the dependents for seven days every year.
The later is a highly unique exchange of perspectives leading to fun,
excitement, camaraderie, competition, and education. Great experience，A must try.
