BENEFITING: C & T YOUTH TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY INC
Youth Building Bridges (YBB) is a program that sends American high school students and Chinese college students to a rural village in China to tutor the local students. This experience not only benefits the local students, but also enriches the volunteers' life experience and increases their sense of social responsibility.
This year, YBB 2012 will be held from July 27th, 2012 to August 11th, 2012. Volunteers will travel to a rural, mountainous village in Anhui Province, China. There will be around 25 American high school volunteers and 25 Chinese college volunteers. Together, they will create a tight-nit YBB family that will change the lives of students around the world.
However, while we would like to give as much support as we can possibly give to the students in China, we have a set budget. In addition, there are many exceptional students who applied for YBB 2012 and are more than qualified. Due to financial reasons, they may not be able to pay for the trip.
Help us fundraise for student scholarships and necessary materials for our trip this year. All donations are appreciated, no matter big or small.
