Exchange & Volunteering

Amity is running several exchange programs aimed at the involvement of overseas friends and partner organizations all over the world to serve the needy and learn from each other. For our teachers, young volunteers from home and abroad and staff who serve with Amity's Education and International Exchange Division, to teach is to learn, and to offer is to gain. Those who participate actively in this dynamic exchange process, not only can serve others with their knowledge and transferable skills, but also can cultivate a stronger sense of values, ethics, and civic engagement. For all participants, there is always a possibility to a more exciting and meaningful life, which would also contribute to a better society. 

Amity Teacher Program

Amity teachers serve one year or more and are placed in teacher-training institutes in China. Amity teachers teach English and western culture to their students who will be primary and middle school teachers in less developed regions of China.

Summer English Program

The Amity Summer English Program invites volunteers to provide oral English training and to demonstrate teaching methodology to Chinese English teachers. Make a difference and experience Chinese culture in an unique way.

Young Adults Program

Amity’s Young Adults Program is an exchange program providing opportunities for young adults from overseas

to come to China for a gap year. They are assigned to teach language and culture in schools of China that are less developed.

Service-Learning Program

Volunteer Management

Amity supports regular volunteer services. Most of our projects are designed to involve volunteers. By doing so we hope to boost the spirit and idea of charity and contribute the emergence of empowered, caring and responsible citizens. Amity works with its partners and service-providing entities to offer more opportunities for volunteering.

For people from overseas, Amity offers exchange programs that include a variety of possibilities to participate in our volunteer services. We want overseas people to join hands with Chinese people, raise mutual understanding and work actively together for a peaceful and better world.
