NOTE: The following was provided by Mr. Pan, who is working hard to bring education opportunities to remote areas of Guizhou Province. I have discussed his project with him several times and wish him success. …. Also, I have listed this post under categories of Education, Do-Gooders, and Jack, which I believe to be appropriate. . .

YY English Learning Center offers English language services to children and youth in remote areas in Guizhou Province, China. Our mission is to bring equal opportunity of education and exposure to children and youth of remote regions in Guizhou Province. YY works together with local schools to bring quality English language instructions to children of minority ethnic origins, and to children that are “left behind” by parents who find jobs in coastal areas in search of a better life. More than 80% of our student population are ethnic minorities, and more than 70% of our student population are “left-behind” children.
YY English Learning Center currently operates in Luodian County, Duyun District. We are also in the process of expanding to other regions including Weining, Pu’an, Shuicheng, and Libo. We are providing supplemental English classes focusing on listening and speaking. In Luodian, we have enrolled more than 400 primary school children ages from 6 to 12, and close to 100 middle school children ages from 12 to 15. The numbers are still growing!
Our classes are structured to bring out the best of Chinese style classroom teaching, native speaker classroom teaching, and native speaker on-line teaching. While the Chinese teacher provides the basic structure and drilling of the English language, the on-line teacher provides the authenticity and accuracy for the class. The native speaker brings in the dynamic effects of the language learning process and a level of connectedness. Our approach has proven to be effective.
We are in dire need of native speakers that can do on-line teaching through Skype Monday through Friday afternoons. Classes are 40 minutes each with some 20 students, focusing on elementary listening and speaking. The class schedule for each day is 4:40 – 5:20, 5:30 – 6:10, 7:30 – 8:10, and 8:20 – 9:00. YY can compensate teachers up to RMB120 (USD20) per class. The classes are assisted by an assistant teacher for the best results.
We are also looking for guest native speakers on weekends to visit Loudian, a beautiful place in the Southern part of Guizhou. We will provide transportation, accommodations, and stipends for speakers. And we can arrange sight-seeing and family visits if requested.
