We seek to keep the older children as involved as possible in Duke China Care, but find that the younger children tend to enjoy the playgroups more. Therefore we welcome children age nine and above to join our mentorship program. The mentorship program pairs each child with their own Duke mentorbased on shared interests. We offer group mentorship events in order for the older children to spend time together, but more importantly the child-student pair will plan their own activities to enjoy together. This is a great chance for the older children and teens to interact and learn from each other andtheir mentors while having lots of fun!

Our mentorship program was founded in the spring of 2008. We kick-started the program by taking a trip to Ben & Jerry's on Ninth Street. Mentors and mentees had a great time getting to know each other while sharing in fun games. We continue to offer group events each semester. See the schedule of events below for our upcoming group mentorship events (pictures!).

If you are a Duke student interested in becoming a mentor, or a parent interested in signing your child up for this program, please contact one of our mentorship coordinators, Suellen Li (suellen.li@duke.edu) or Lucy Ma (lucy.ma@duke.edu), for an application.
