As part of our partnership with the Minhang government, HandsOn Shanghai began working with the school in 2010 through library donations, large scale events, and regular volunteer events with individual, students, and corporate volunteers.
During the 2011 school year, HandsOn programs will require more volunteers to support the school in developing different interest clubs and deliver lessons out of the school schedule. All curriculums and events are designed to help the school to improve the education quality and bring the migrant students a broad view of the diversity culture and knowledge, which enables growth and development of student interests and building up their confidence through accomplishment.
Opened in November 2009, Yumiao Migrant School is located near Shanghai South Railway station (line 1 or 3), and currently has 1000 students enrolled in grades 1-6. Privately run and managed, the school recently received the funding necessary to upgrade school rooms and train its 50 teachers.
