Mini UWC / China
Mini-UWC is a 9-day summer program organized by All Students for Action Program (ASAP). ASAP is an initiative of UWC Changshu China students, that aims to develop and spread the idea of “All for Action” and holds the principle of “learning, practising and changing”. The program takes place on the UWCCSC campus, with counselors from both CSC and other UWC campuses.
During the course, campers learn the skills required to initiate their own social service projects, which they are encouraged to bring back to their local communities when the short course ends. Daily theme activities encourage the campers to bond and have fun while reflecting on certain UWC values. During the course, campers and counselors go on a field trip and explore local cultures.
The theme for Mini-UWC 2020 is “Motif for Movement”. Inspired by the UWC movement, we hope the theme reflects our aspiration to empower teenagers to bring positive changes to their communities. We believe that our campers, who know how to speak up and take action, who know the importance of working together as a strong and powerful force, have the potential to become “motifs” for change.
