Volunteer Placements

Volunteers can choose one or multiple placements from the following

IC English Classroom

which is an after-school activity organized by Insight China for children from the local community. The aim of the English Classroom is to improve children’s English through interacting with volunteers, and at the same time to teach children life skills and good behaviors, through games and activities.

IC English Corner

which is an English teaching/learning and cultural exchanging activity, in which volunteers teach/talk with a group of Chinese people who want to improve their English and learn about Western culture. Volunteers will also learn about China and its people through interactions with these participants.


where volunteers teach English to young Chinese children, or help Chinese teachers with their English. Arts, songs and games are all good subjects.

Centers for mentally challenged children

 where volunteers help teachers take care of the children in these centers. No special education skills or experience is required.


where volunteers help English-language tour guides with their English, or help proofread materials in English for the museums.


in different fields, from education to environmental protection, where volunteers work with social workers in China and gain first-hand experience of how a Chinese NGO is operating.

Other types of volunteer placement may be arranged on request or according to volunteers’ interests/backgrounds. Contact us if you would like to have a special type of volunteer placement or want to find more about them.
