Non-profit Developmental Camp
Open their eyes
FutureChina provides students from impoverished regions with opportunities to interact with students from renowned universities and elites in professions, and get to know the world’s developmental trend in future, as well as seeking their own future career plans.
The developmental camp lasted for one week and was led by the counseling plan. All of the counselors were outstanding students selected from top universities and each professional field, including top 1 scorer in Chinese College Entrance Exam in Sichuan province. Under the guidance of the counselors, the campers explored fields of natural sciences, medicine, humanities, and social sciences, arts, and fulfilled the assigned tasks. The tasks needed to be accomplished by the campers individually with the instructions from the counselors, for example, the natural sciences group focused on exploring environmental-friendly water purification compounds, social sciences group emphasized sexual differences and other traditional concepts, etc.
