Castlemont's PBC Trip to China 2018

My students need a field trip that will allow them to get out of the Bay Area, see a foreign country, try foreign foods and experience a foreign culture. As students in a low-income/high poverty community, students face difficult challenges so traveling outside of our country is a foreign idea by itself.
Our kids love success stories, love expressing themselves, love creative writing, and love community building. A large percentage of them are being raised in single parent households while others come from families that are impoverished. When we see this at our school, we feed kids out of our own pockets and classrooms.
Without a doubt, going on this trip will impact their lives, and could potentially help prevent them from feeling neglected
and supporting students of our East Oakland Community as they prepare for life during and after Castlemont. 2018 will be significant because it will be their first time leaving the US to explore Xian, Shanghai, and Beijing, China in an effort to help our young 11th and 12th grade men become more economically, socially, politically, and culturally diversified.
