This program runs for 6 weeks in the summer time, July 2nd to August 8th. It runs from 8:30 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon from Monday to Friday. Minghui joined Focus on Youth in 2008 to join a community with great parent outreach and an established “people-helping-people” culture.
With humble beginnings as a program run by a single family, the organization has grown to community centres and schools across Toronto. Such rapid expansion — more than 100 children have graduated from the program since 2008 — can be attributed to the consistently positive feedback from parents and the visible, positive growth shown by participants.
The Bilingual Chinese Program offers opportunities for children who would like to learn traditional Chinese culture. They learn to read and write Chinese characters. Through storytelling and arts and crafts activities, they engage in meaningful conversations carried out in Mandarin and English. They also gave outdoor activities that they are familiar with (e.g. sports, nature walks, museum trips, etc.) and have many opportunities to report these activities in speaking and writing modes.
