About

The Volunteer Program China (VPC) gives volunteers the chance to come to China and through a number of projects support the care, education and development of a number of disadvantaged children. There are currently two volunteer options, Serviced Learning Placements are aimed at volunteers coming for a minimum of 12 weeks and/or who have specialized skills or experience and the Community Volunteer Project is for those with less time to commit.

ImmerQi has partnered with locally run not-for-profit organizations that struggle financially and have limited resources. The VPC project helps, not only by providing volunteers to teach English, help with sponsorship and fundraising, and organize extra-curriculum activities but also by giving funds back to the local community through donations from the participant’s fees. The longer the project duration, the more program fee would be donated!

Amazing Experience

My time in China was amazing. ImmerQi's staff went above and beyond to help me. They provided constant support. Whether it was helping locate a package or providing encouragement, they were so helpful. It was a great experience to grow professionally and emotionally. I would definitely recommend the program to anyone.

What would you improve about this program?
I would have loved to have some ideas on how to teach child with vision impairments. It was difficult for me to come up with ideas that were successful.
