English Teacher to Migrant & Left-behind Children Stepping Stones China

Stepping Stones China

Project Details

A volunteer program striving to improve the education and welfare of migrant and left-behind children in China.

Stepping Stones is a not-for-profit organization registered both in mainland China (Shanghai), with the mission to improve the education and general welfare of disadvantaged children in China.

Stepping Stones was founded in 2006 in order to organize volunteers to teach English in Shanghai's primary schools for migrants in response to requests from schools’ principals, which struggled to provide a reasonable standard of English teaching to their students.

English is one of the three core subjects in the Chinese school curriculum, and the one that poses most challenges to rural teachers of English, including those who have migrated to urban centres where they are teaching migrant children. English level is therefore the biggest differentiator between urban and rural Chinese children, and this above all perpetuates the gap in educational and employment opportunities.

Stepping Stones is proud that classes taught by his volunteers been proven to increase students exam results and increase their confidence and interest in English.

Social Impact

Stepping Stones has been conducting impact evaluation studies to measure the difference the Stepping Stones teaching programs are making to our students' confidence and interest in English.

One study showed that students in classes with one oral English lesson per week with a volunteer teacher through our Classroom Teaching Programs improved their test scores in English by an average of 9%.
