Need: The Library Project needs volunteers at all of our library donations. You can help with taking photos, doing activities with the children, being a language interpreter, delivering donation items, and sorting books. Volunteer work varies with each donation, but our volunteer leader will conduct a short training before each donation to get you up to speed.. Volunteering at a library donation is hard work, but it is also fun and very rewarding.

Requirements: Volunteers must be in good health, have health insurance (if you don’t have life insurance, we can provide you a short-term health insurance plan covering 5 days, and it costs 10 Yuan CNY), be available for donation day-trips or multi-days-trips (day-trips are usually 7am to 6pm; multi-days-trip can be as short as two days and as long as two weeks), be able to sit in a truck or van on bumpy roads, and enjoy simple accommodations and food. The most important thing about being a TLP volunteer is to have a big heart and enjoy working with children.
