NCLS SEP Introduction支教团队简介

Newton Chinese Language School (NCLS) initiated a Support Education Program (SEP) in 2003. The program’s first team embarked on a one-week school visit to China in 2007. Over the past two decades, 23 educators and 138 team students have visited numerous schools in China and sponsored nearly 300 students to complete their high school education. In 2022, SEP launched a scholarship program to provide financial assistance to underprivileged families in the school.

The SEP’s activities establish cultural exchanges between China and the United States while offering a platform for U.S. children to appreciate their community’s blessings and pass on the kindness. In 2015, the school qualified for PVSA Certifying Organization, permitting it to award the “Presidential Volunteer Service Award” to students engaging in volunteerism, thus encouraging community service.
