2013 marks the 3rd year of Voluntary Teaching for China. This year, volunteers traveled to Ming Xing School in Yuncheng, Shanxi to teach for the first time.
In the previous years, VTC taught in Beijing Blue Sky Elementary School. This is the first year participating in voluntary teaching at Ming Xing School.
The area Yuncheng, Shanxi is located in a relatively more rural area. Surrounded by mountains, Ming Xing School houses all students within school grounds.
Volunteers lived in a spare office in the main school building. Every morning they rose at 6am to exercise with the students. Volunteers taught ages 8 through 18, handling 4 hours of class everyday.
