Dear Teachers and Parents,
Due to the strong support of the community from NCLS teachers, parents, staff, working group members, The Tan Family Education Foundation and communities surround Boston area, NCLS Support China Education Project (SEP) has become a well-known community service program. We are incredibly thankful for your generosity, just last year alone, the SEP program was able to assist 30 high school students from disadvantaged families at Yuci Erzhong to finish their high school. You have made huge impact on those lives.
As we start the new school year of 2017 – 2018, the NCLS Support China Education Program has kicked-off its planning phase during the summer. This marks the 12th year of the Program. This year we will be providing support to students at Xin’an Yizhong, Henan province (河南省新安一中). More information about this school and the students will be made available on the NCLS web site.
Working Group Member Recruitment – To make this year’s program successful, again we are recruiting new working group members. The number of members is not limited. Any parent, teacher or staff who is interested in supporting and contributing is welcome to join us. The working group members are all volunteers, but we do need certain amount of commitment from you as a team member, please take a look at your schedule before you apply. We will run a series of fund-raising events and activities, have meetings and organize the students’ trip to China. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before Saturday September 30, 2017.
Student Volunteers Recruitment – As usual, we are also recruiting student volunteers this year. Every NCLS student above 8thgrade is eligible even if you are not planning to go on the trip to China in April and your volunteer hours will be recognized. For those students who would like to apply as a member to go to China in April 2018, volunteer work prior to the trip is required. We especially welcome our program alumni to volunteer again this year as a way to give back to the program. If you are interested, please register online by clicking the link:
