Want to volunteer in China during the Olympic Games?
From August 8th – 24th 2008, the biggest Olympics ever are being held in Beijing, China.
The excitement has been building for years amongst both the youngest members of the population and the oldest. It is a new experience for China. Why not get a feel for what it is like to be in China during this time?
We already have a number of applicants who have arranged to do a project with us in Shanghai before heading north to experience some of the events in Beijing. There will also be plenty going on in Shanghai itself, as Shanghai Stadium is hosting many of the Olympic soccer matches.
One of our placements which will be directly affected by the games is the journalism project. We have placements working on English language newspapers and magazines in China which will be focusing on the sporting events in Beijing during the Olympics. You don’t need specific journalism experience to work on this project just an enthusiasm to get involved.
