The Sixth China Youth Volunteer Service Project Competition was recently held, and two volunteer service projects from the College of Science, namely “Green Hope - the inheritor of public welfare education” and “Magic Cube Classroom - multi-dimensional care for the healthy growth of children and youth” from the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, stood out and won Silver and Bronze Awards in the category of caring for children and youth.
This year’s competition was launched in May with the theme of “Volunteering in a New Era, Building the Chinese Dream”. 1000 entries entered the national final evaluation, and three of our projects were shortlisted. In March 2022, NEFU launched the university level competition and submitted four projects to participate in the provincial level competition. After expert guidance and online defense, the four projects won one gold, two bronze and one excellence award in the provincial level competition.
The national silver award project, “Green Hope - the inheritor of public welfare education” of the College of Science, has been carrying out public welfare education activities for a long time, helping special children groups, caring for children left behind in the countryside and helping to revitalize rural education. The project adopts the operation model of “4+2+10”, creating four brand actions of helping left-behind children, caring for special groups, spreading spiritual culture and educating children, supplemented by two publicity modules using WeChat and ShakeYin (a short video platform), and carrying out ten special volunteer service activities. The National Bronze Award-winning project “Magic Classroom - Multi-dimensional Care for the Healthy Growth of Children and Adolescents” from the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering was launched in 2020 and is dedicated to addressing the lack of second-class learning for primary school students. The project covers six sub-projects, including “Little Green Horse”, AI, Belle, Science, Aesthetic Education and Heart Curtain, and has carried out more than 50 volunteer activities and benefited more than 2,000 people.
It is reported that, as the highest standard, largest and most influential volunteer service event in the field of national volunteerism, the final evaluation of the competition covers 13 fields such as rural revitalization, care for children and youth, services for the elderly, and so on. In recent years, the NEFU has always insisted on promoting the project-based volunteer service, and has won a total of 4 silver awards and 4 bronze awards in the competitions.
