Founded in 2009, DiSCOVER is a three-month summer enrichment program organized by youth for youth. Designed to help Chinese Canadians learn more about their roots, DiSCOVER includes a series of weekend cultural workshops, Mandarin classes, and volunteer opportunities for youth to grow and self-explore. This all culminates in a two-week subsidized trip to China, where participants will get to engage with students from Peking University, and experience firsthand landmark sites including the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City, Terracotta Warriors, and Lord Mengchang Mausoleum.
