ENVOY

Emissary Notable Venturer of Youth

Maryknoll School sends two teachers and students to China for 10 days to teach, tutor, and perform community service as ENVOYs to a local Chinese school and community.

Currently Maryknoll sends ENVOYs to Changqing #1 Middle School in Wuhan and Jinyuan Senior High School in Shanghai. Other schools are also being considered as ENVOY partners.

Goals of ENVOY

List of 4 items.

  • Goal #1: Curriculum

    To complement Maryknoll School Mandarin curriculum by offering creative international and engaging teacher and student service trips in Mainland China to teach English to Chinese students.
  • Goal #2: Global Citizenship

    Experiences for Maryknoll students to practice skills of world citizenship, while participating in other government structures, cultures, with volunteerism, advocacy, philanthropy, and business and education strategies. We believe participation in the Maryknoll ENVOY program will help our students reach their global citizenship potential.
  • Goal #3: Maryknoll Motto

    Students practice the school motto, Noblesse Oblige, to whom much is given, much is expected.
  • Goal #4: Maryknoll Classes in China

    Maryknoll classes taught year-round in Chinese Sister Schools.

Teaching American Culture Through Conversational English

ENVOY teachers and students expose Chinese students through Maryknoll pedagogy, to western culture and educational systems, through conversational English. Maryknoll teachers and students work together to teach American culture and history, English grammar, collaboration, problem solving, and college life in America.

Perhaps the most significant results of all the Maryknoll ENVOYs are the special relationships created and the global perspectives gained by our teachers and students.
