Description: The JUMP! Foundation, on August 26th, will tell us about 10 years of challenges and triumphs operating in China.The foundation team will discuss how global methodologies and thought leadership have affected public education in China and to what extent these new “western” approaches to education have been helped or hindered.

“We don’t believe our children are being fully developed.” Many people are jaded today about the standard education system’s success in China. The evening offers all of us an opportunity to understand what can be done. The foundation has worked with more than 15,000 people on four continents since its creation in Beijing in 2006, initially offering a youth leadership programme which has since evolved into a successful platform to inspire and empower youth to become community leaders through “experiential education”. With its extensive experience in outreach – working with countless global partners around the world – Jump! will help us see how a mission to bring whole child development to disadvantaged youth throughout China is making a difference
