Greetings everyone! We at the SF Chinatown Corps wish to apologize for the lack of updates recently. Please wait as we will try to overhaul the site over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, here is some news and information for you!

Summer Day Camp

Our summer day camp will be starting early June running for the duration of the summer until the end of the SFUSD summer break. Please come in to pick up an application! Our staff includes college students and college graduates as our teachers and high school students as assistants and volunteers. Please come in for an application! We will have snacks and meals included in the fee as well as weekly field trips. Academic subjects taught include English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Chinese, Art, and Music. We will also have occasional Community and Cultural Exploration classes! In the past, we have visited the firestation, the police station, OnLok nursing home, and many more fixtures of our community to learn about how the city is run and protected, and to learn about the Chinese culture through classes and visits with community members.

If you wish to volunteer for the Summer Day Camp, please also come in to pick up a volunteer application and for a brief interview. High School students and above, only. Letters of Recommendation available for those who satisfactorily complete the program with a minimum number of hours worked, to be determined based on how full we are with volunteers.
