Over the weekend, HGC students participating in the Victorian Young Leaders to China Program (VYLC) attended a successful pre-departure camp designed to help orient the students before their 6-week immersion in China.
Students took part in a series of fun team building activities designed to build leadership capability during the program and to provide strategies to help the children during their time away. Learning how to prepare for and adapt to cultural diversity, they received China-specific information about what to expect when they are in China and in Chinese schools.
Students also heard from former VYLC students who provided helpful tips and information about what to expect on their trip.
The VYLC program is an amazing opportunity designed to prepare students to live and work as citizens and future leaders in an inter-connected global community.
We can’t wait to hear the students’ stories from this amazing experience!
