Yale-China Teaching Fellows provide instruction in oral English, academic writing, and American history and culture to university and high school students over the course of two years in mainland China and Hong Kong. Teaching is at the core of this century-old tradition because it provides Fellows with a respected role within the local community, as opposed to the role of a visitor looking in from the outside. The classroom also provides a canvas for interaction, mutual sharing, and leadership. In addition, Yale-China Fellows are charged with planning and leading extracurricular activities as a way to create learning opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to their students. Recent examples have included school musicals, a debate team, and community service trips run in conjunction with Yale Reach Out.

Arts

Yale-China has a 111-year history rich with partners and programs in education and health, but an unintended, ancillary discipline has organically developed within Yale-China‘s work—the arts. Yale-China’s first century of promoting understanding between communities in the United States and China is full of remarkable instances that highlight the impact of the arts.

Call For Artists: Yale-China invites artists of all disciplines interested in U.S.-China exchange to provide input on developing programs. All Yale University students and faculty are invited to join the conversation on the next Yale-China arts program.
