Internship Position

Internship Description: Students interested in spending the summer or an extended period working in China can work with VFC staff to meet their Bonner Summer Internship Program requirements.  Projects in China may last from three to six weeks or longer if needed. College students, teachers, and/or high school graduates can serve in an oral English program where the students are a mixture of Chinese English teachers and Chinese students. American students help the Chinese students to overcome the fear of speaking while they participate in the classroom teaching situation.  American students can also take brief Chinese classes learning Chinese language, art, calligraphy, history, cooking and traditional tai qi. They will work with Chinese students learning American cultural activities in the afternoon and evenings. Volunteers must be flexible concerning program content.  This is a great internship opportunity for those who want to live and work in a very different context and gain international perspective.


VFC is a Christian organization that works with the legal Christian Church in China.  We obey all of the laws of China while in country and do not practice any violations of Chinese law while serving in the capacity of educational teachers.  VFC expects and requires that all volunteers respect the laws of China while taking part in any of our programs.


All students are advised to obtain immunizations in accordance with public health guidance.  A good dental visit is also advisable before leaving.  All students should be in good physical health and be completely independent as far as movement and carrying of own luggage.
