About VTC

Vancouver’s Voluntary Teaching for China is an international program for young adults founded by Cecilia and Kevin’s Music Studio. Each year, young volunteers travel to China to teach English and Music to children in rural areas. Volunteers register for this program by December each year, training and preparation takes place throughout January and February and volunteering begins in March.

The essence of the program is to expose young adults to the experiences of work and a different lifestyle, to offer them an opportunity to develop planning, organizing, and leadership skills, and feel what it’s like to be respected and responsible.

At the same time, we also hope that our efforts would help improve the education of children in rural areas of China and open their eyes to the diversity of the world they live in.

The Vancouver’s Voluntary Teaching for China has one main goal: To foster one generation, to train one generation, and to assemble one generation. Through education people should not only gain on knowledge but should also learn how to accomplish a task and communicate with and contribute to the society we live in. Young people will need to go through many meaningful experiences through their progress to adulthood; From these experiences, they can gain a better understanding of the world and start to take on certain responsibilities, for ourselves, our family, or our society. A true working experience stimulates us to think about our next steps in life. Only when we experience life ourselves do we realize it’s true meaning.

VTC also works closely with Vanstring Chamber Music Group to bring music performances to audiences in China.

温哥华志教中国是由温哥华最大弦乐音乐学院 Cecilia & Kevin Music Conservatory 和贺海洋先生共同发起的一项国际义工项目。成立于2009年。目的是:培养一代人、凝聚一代人,携手走向更美好的明天。

每年春假由Kevin 老师亲自带队,率领加拿大九年级至十二年级中学生回到中国的农民工子弟学校或偏远山区去义务教授英文、音乐等科目。每年十月底截至报名,一月至三月间做Leadership和教学的培训,三月份正式回囯工作。先后曾在北京蓝天丰苑民工子弟工学校和山西名星中学工作。

宗旨是让加拿大的年青人通过一系列组织工作,来全方位认识世界,开始思考生活和责任等诸多未来的问题,在经历不同文化和不同经济的冲突中,促进他们的成熟,完善他们的教育。

另一宗旨是让世界另一方面经济不福裕地区的孩面对面接触到世界上先进的教育。在一起生活和学习的曰子里,推开他们心里的一扇门,点亮他们心中的一盏灯,让努力的种子在彼此心中生根发芽!

其间,他们成功地给北京蓝天丰苑民工子弟工学校和光爱小学捐赠和成立了一个弦乐团,并在那里授课。连续五年在吕梁地区名星中学工作学习。他们还在北京大学、清华大学、宋庆龄基金会、及许多中学做过专场演出。

至今,己经八年了。八年我们有近二十曾经的团员上了大学,其中三分之二在美国长春藤。最重要的是,毎个毕业的团员都会带上一箱子志教中同学们的信件及小礼物,这是他们中学生活中最珍贵的记忆,他们会牢记自己的诺言:
伸手我们的手,世界会精彩….
