Summer 2015

Join us as we relive great moments from our sessions in 2015. Mentors from all around the world formed lasting friendships with their mentees in Quzhou, Taizhou, Kunming, Yancheng, Houcun, and Bengbu.

2015 was one of our most exciting years yet! We partnered up with different local organizations and our mentors played an even bigger role in bringing their talents to summer sessions, and sharing their knowledge with our students.
