A fruitful trip to WISS

Training project for Volunteers from “Shanghai M-kids”

On November17th, five volunteers from “Shanghai Mkids” went to WISS (Western International School of Shanghai) in which there will shortly be an office of You Dao Foundation. In fact WISS and You Dao intend to be in partnership for projects with the migrants in the area. The volunteers completed a one-day training project on teaching skills sponsored by WISS. The volunteers were warmly welcomed by WISS. Almost all the classes at WISS were opened to them. They observed several lessons: Chinese, arts, sports and games, music, etc. After the lesson, they had a good talk with the teachers. After the training, the volunteers had a short conversation with Todd Flanagan, the president of WISS and a board member of You Dao Foundation as well. Todd initiated this training project and made all good things happen. On the way home, the volunteers were very excited. They felt the experience in WISS would help them a lot on how to better communicate the migrant kids. WISS will provide the training to the volunteers periodically according to their needs.
