Experience the incredible beauty and culture of China in two ways: through its modernizing, vibrant cityscape, and through its more traditional counterpart in the countryside.
Experience the incredible beauty and culture of China in two ways: We'll volunteer in a rural minority community where the residents are actively working to preserve their heritage and cultural traditions. We'll help improve the conditions here through a physical service project. You'll also be a friend and role model to local children while making a difference.
Experience the languages and cultural traditons of China in a variety of ways. On one hand, you'll be immersed in the vibrant urban environment of China's cities and partake in the bustle of daily life. On the other hand, you'll see firsthand what it's like to live and work in rural China, and how agriculture sustains people living far from city limits. Along the way, GLA staff will guide you in discussions comparing to very distinctive lifestyles, and the challenges locals will face as China's population increasingly transitions from primarily rural to predominantly urban.
China is a beautiful nation packed with opportunities for exploration and adventure. Your adventures will show you the beauty of this diverse nation. During your time in Beijing, you'll also have the chance to hike to the top of the Great Wall of China. You'll also discover marvels like The Forbidden City and other places of cultural significance.
