Youth Voices is designed to encourage U.S. middle school, high school and college students of ages 13-25 to think more broadly about U.S.-China relations and how China may affect their future. By helping foster  a new generation of young, China-savvy Americans, we will help dispel stereotypes, dissolve fears, and foster connection and collaboration with their China counterparts can help make a difference in global stability, prosperity and peace.

It is a sister program to the Institute’s CHINA NOW | For Teachers program and its Teachers Workshop, which aim to expand youth and teacher participation in global education and cross-cultural awareness.  Our Teachers program works with U.S. teachers (social studies teachers and others) on infusing more modern China content into American curriculum.
