After the success of Malinda Schultz’s Wufong Project that raised the funds to build a community center in ChingChuan (in Hsinchu) that supports the indigenous community especially the kids there, we are looking to kick off programs for the local youth. The center will not be ready until 2013 but there is no reason why the children should have to wait – nor should you have to wait till 2013 to be able to get involved now!
由馬琳達˙蘇茨（ Malinda Schultz）所領導的五峰計畫十分成功，並順利募得重建清泉活動中心的款項，也期盼能幫助當地原住民─特別是原住民孩童─的生活。目前，我們希望能為當地青少年族群開設一些藝術創意課程；雖然活動中 心預計 2013 年才完工，但是我們希望課程能盡早開始。原住民孩子不須等到
2013年 你也不需要等到 2013 年，現在就開始吧！
WHAT WE NEED: We are looking for a rotation of passionate volunteers that can come up for a Saturday early afternoon course related to more arts and crafts workshops for the kids. This can be a long term (once a month or over a weekend) or a one-time volunteer opportunity although I’m sure after the first time you head out there, you’ll be joining us again.
＊ Guitar 吉他 ＊ Drumming 擊鼓 ＊Painting 藝術，畫畫 ＊ Photography 攝影 ＊ Cooking/baking 烹飪/烘烤 ＊ Video/film making 視頻/電影製作 ＊ Website design 網站設計 ＊ Computer skills, as appropriate 計算機技能
Just in Taiwan for a few months and haven’t been able to get out of Taipei? This is the ideal opportunity to get out to Hsinchu and up in the mountains for some greenery. After the workshop there’s plenty of trails to walk around and spend the night in a hostel up in the mountains. If weather permits so that you don’t boil to pinkness, hot springs are abound too in this gorgeous setting!
TASK: Share your knowledge, whether it be arts, baking, cooking, magic, or offering basic music workshops! There are dozens of kids in all ages and we can sort out additional volunteers to assist you and make this a fantastic project for all. We’ve had people volunteer before and they’ve walked away with an amazing experience to have been able to show the youth their skills!
