application process

Applying is easy.

To apply, please go to our application page and provide:

  • your CV
  • a photo you are happy for our partners to see, preferably you doing an activity (e.g. sport, music) with your face visible
  • a 200 word personal statement; let us know why you want to go to China, why you want to volunteer at the summer camps and what makes you the right fit for our programmes

On your application, indicate any preferences you have for your location, e.g. urban or rural, and we’ll do our best to match you to your ideal programme.

We’ll review your application and get back to you within 14 days. If you don’t hear from us within this period, please email us at recruitment[at]

Successful candidates will have a video interview with prospective camps before we let you know where you’ll be heading next summer. We will confirm your place on our programmes as quickly as possible, with most final locations being confirmed in late Spring 2018.

We judge all applicants on their merits and do not discriminate against candidates in any way.
