SUMMER SCHOOL

SUMMER SCHOOL was launched in 2009, with service locations throughout Taiwan.

From volunteering at schools in rural areas, helping with reconstruction after natural disasters, to experiencing different aspects of culture and environment, youths are led to expand their horizons and learn how to put words into actions by serving others.

Our expectation is that more youths are able to take the first step into making their dreams comes true.

Taipei (Evolving International Perspective)

Participants served as the ambassadors of the NGO One-Forty on campus. After meeting with migrant workers in person, they returned to their own cities and hosted a Southeast Asia Sunday event in order to make a difference in Taiwanese people’s international understanding level.

Yuanli (Evolving Cultural Preservation)

In an advanced society, we should link traditions with new technologies and come up with more ways to preserve them.
We went to Yuanli in Miaoli to learn about rush weaving from the Sunnyrush team and the local women, and then formalized the weaving method in the hope of permanently preserving this craft.

Taipei (Evolving Educational Innovation)

We made City Wanderer as our model and led the participants to think about the process of educational innovation from scratch while examining the structure and problems faced by education innovators, to give the participants a chance to take the next step in the future.

Yuanli (Evolving Agricultural Revival)

Rural areas have been known to be backward and underdeveloped for a very long time.
In recent years, however, many young people decided to return to their home villages and preserve the beauty of the countryside in innovative ways.
Let’s follow these young people to experience a week of rural life and help promote local markets.

Taipei (Living with the Disadvantaged)

The three-day adventure included daytime workshops with innovators to think about different alternatives related to this topic and night life with our homeless mentors to experience what life would be without a home.

Taipei (Evolving Community Ties)

We are full of romantic ideas when it comes to local communities, but rarely are we courageous enough to delve into them and have a conversation with locals.
This time, we decided to take our first step toward connecting them; it was risky but totally worth it.
feat. Rolling in Life

Taipei (Promoting Aesthetic Education)

This was a campus transformation project, and an adventure with limited time to complete too.
We spent three weeks putting forward different proposals for aesthetic renovation on slide shows for teaching, classroom decoration and the campus environment.

Sanxia (Evolving Mountain Protection)

Two teams of mountain-lovers and a group of fervent students travelled to Wuliaojian Mountain in Sanxia for an adventure.
However, the goal this time was not to reach the summit, but to clean the mountain itself.
