Suolu Junior Youth English Training Center (Suolu), located in Lijiang City in Yunnan province, is a nonprofit dedicated to discovering the potential and raising the moral capabilities of youth. Suolu promotes character development, including values of exploration, independent thinking and questioning, mutual respect and support, as well as community service through the use of an English story-based curriculum. Suolu is working with three schools as well as three villages to implement the program. In addition, it trains teachers and facilitators to guide students to design their own community service projects, including environmental action projects, elderly care, and mentorship of younger students. Since its founding in 2005, the organization has directly impacted nearly 6000 rural youth.
