Summer Program

This STEP camp is a three-week educational summer camp where volunteers help children in disadvantaged Taiwan communities.

- Program Breakdown -

 
 STEP partners with local teachers who work everyday to close the education gap between urban and rural areas of Taiwan. We aim to counteract the trend of underprivileged children being academically behind because of their environment. These leaders in education operate after-school tutoring program that provides help to students during the school year. With the STEP camp, we pick up on the momentum that these teachers have established and maintain it over the student's summer vacation.

The first and foremost goal for STEP would focus on creating a well-developed curriculum that would most efficiently help students improve their ability to communicate in English and their other core academic subjects. We work with the help of local volunteers who work year-round with the students. STEP utilizes testing data and personal accounts from these volunteers to accurately gauge the student's learning level and pinpoint weak areas that the students need help on. This information is communicated to STEP volunteers for months leading up to the camp to help with brainstorming and, eventually, designing for the curriculum.
