My name is Alvin Yao and I am very excited to be a counselor for Chinatown Adventure 2021. This program will include projects that will build a sense of community and an understanding of Boston Chinatown’s culture and history. We will utilize the virtual tools as well as limited outdoor engagement this summer to teach. Additionally, a personal goal is to incorporate empathy into teaching. As an aspiring physician, I've pursued an understanding of empathy and continue to explore how it affects the relationships we hold. I hope that students will be more empathetic after this summer, caring more about certain issues and each other. We would like to keep the tuition low for families as well as support our community-based initiatives which is where your help comes in. Anything will help our goal in providing the community with what they need. Thank you!
