    Overview

    Ancient civilization fuses with high-tech modernity in today’s China and the time to experience this incredible transformation is right now! Earn up to 20 hours of community service while helping at a Giant Panda rehabilitation center and working in a rural Chinese village. Assist with the conservation efforts being made to save 50 endearing giant and red pandas. Collaborate directly with the villagers in a rural Chinese village to learn about their sustainable farming efforts.

    Our educational service projects in China will enhance global awareness and help us identify more with Chinese culture. In addition to our service work, we’ll explore China’s important cities and its idyllic countryside. From the Great Wall of China, where you’ll walk the same paths as citizens thousands of years ago, to the metropolis that is Shanghai. Immerse yourself in Chinese culture with a cooking lesson in China’s most notable Sichuan cuisine, meet with local artisans and try your hand at watercolor tapestry painting, and so much more. Gaze in awe at the Bell and Drum Towers, two Ming Dynasty architectural treasures, and climb to the top of the walls of Xi’an City. Travel to China on this teen travel program with TFT for the ultimate discovery of a historically rich and fascinating country!

      "I never thought I'd have the opportunity to go to China until I saw the trip posted on TFT. I was so excited because I had gone to Southeast Asia last year with the company and had a blast. I love learning and understanding the history behind the places so China was the perfect place for me. I was able to see the terracotta warriors, the Great Wall of China, and even work with amazing, and cuddly, giant pandas. I had never seen a panda before and they are truly incredible animals and something I will never forget! One of my favorite parts was going to help a local farmer. After a long days work, they provided us with our own dumpling making class and a delicious meal. I'm so glad I had the chance to explore China and I cannot wait to go back!"
