Volunteer with Connect-123 in one of the world's most exciting cities - Shanghai! We work with local NGOs to find you a meaningful volunteer project based on your unique skills and interests, from working in an orphanage to teaching English to participating in community service. Learn Mandarin and experience all China has to offer, all while giving back to the community!
Connect-123 is a one-stop shop for whatever you need, whenever you need it, before, during, and after your stay in Shanghai. We know China is far from home. We take care of the details so that you can work hard, play even harder, and only worry about learning and having fun.
- Setting Description:
- Shanghai, the city where East meets West, is China’s most populous city and a major financial center. Areas of British, French, and American settlements could be found in the city up until the second World War and this influence is still seen in the architecture – contrasting with the most modern of skyscrapers! Shanghai is well known for its flashy, diversified and high-energy night life, and for its fascinating culinary scene, featuring street snacks, Malatang (create your own soup) shops and modern Chinese style fare. Further afield the Terracotta Warriors in Xian, the Potala Palace in Tibet and of course the Great Wall in Beijing await!
- Our program fee of $2,250 includes facilitating a volunteer project according to your interests and goals; arranging secure, high-quality, centrally-located accommodation based on your budget and preferences; airport meet and greet service; a complete country information pack to help you prepare for your trip; a comprehensive orientation on arrival; access to Connect-123’s regular social and cultural events; discounts on tourist activities; and substantial local and emergency support.
