Best Wishes, Aiyu!

aiyuLast Tuesday, December 4, 2012, we bid farewell to our wonderful W. T. Chan Fellow Intern, Aiyu Li, who came all the way from China to work for Dance Daze®! During her time in the states, Aiyu studied at UC Berkeley, led a Dance Daze® creative movement and tutoring program at Yu Ming Charter School in Oakland, supported our fundraising and development efforts, and interviewed wonderful nonprofit leaders in the fields of arts and education. We are so grateful for the opportunity to have met and worked with such a lovely young woman, and we will miss her greatly!

2012 Chan Fellows at Dance Daze, Inc. Offices

 

 

On Thursday, October 4, 2012, we were visited by the 2012 UC Berkeley W. T. Chan Fellows. The Chan Fellows are a group of 6 undergraduate and graduate students from China, who spend 5 months in the United States, immersed in a service-learning experience. The Fellows live with local families, attend a university seminar 1 day per week, and work as interns 4 days per week at a nonprofit organization that serves disadvantaged communities. Our Dance Daze Chan Fellow is interning for our nonprofit organization, Dance Daze in Schools. In addition to focusing on fundraising and development with Dance Daze in Schools, she is also leading a dance program and math tutoring program at Yu Ming Charter School, a Mandarin-immersion charter school in Oakland, California. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with UC Berkeley’s W. T. Chan Fellows this year, and we are excited for the work our Fellow is doing this fall semester!
