Photo Essay: Big News in Beijing

Have you heard the news?  Aspire by API is offering two volunteer programs abroad this summer!

Students in our China Community Service Trip will be traveling all the way to the Middle Kingdom.  During the first part of the program, they’ll spend four days exploring the hustle and bustle of China’s booming capital–Beijing!  China has been building up its capital city in recent years, especially since it hosted the Summer Olympics in 2008.  Now, it’s home to some of the world’s most interesting architecture and amazing food.  Of course, China has a long, rich history as well, and students will get to explore this with visits to the Great Wall of China and the Ming Tombs.

So, what is Beijing really all about?  Check out these photos, and if you like what you see, click here to apply to the program!
