There is a lot of joy in these three weeks, but it is a deep joy. It is not just the joy of seeing the Great Wall and the Forbidden City and shopping for funky suits, weird watches and indescribable doodads; it is a joy of doing something important, and of doing it together in a powerful community. We will be truly sad to leave this place, with its babies, caregivers, students, volunteers and staff, and our lives are bound to be changed when we return to our communities at home.

Greg, Team Leader

The New Day Experience
Why Volunteer | Coming to China | Building Relationships

When you come to volunteer with New Day, you are touching lives and making an impact. You will work alongside local Chinese people and experience a rich and beautiful culture. As a volunteer, you are not an outside observer but a participant. The experiences you will have are both authentic and unforgettable.

Coming overseas to volunteer is an inspiring and stretching journey -- making friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. Volunteering abroad ignites a heart for other parts of the world and deepens your sense of social responsibility. During your time at New Day, you will gain new insight into the country of China. As your perspective widens, you will also learn more about yourself and your unique role in the world. Volunteering in China can often be an overwhelming and intense time, but you will see yourself change in ways that are difficult to accomplish from the comforts of home.
