YCIS Character Education programme provides meaningful and memorable lessons focusing on the development of moral character based on Christian values.
Through the programme, students gain the practical knowledge and skills to help them face the ethical, moral, spiritual, social, and cultural issues of adulthood by reflecting on their experiences in real world situations. It helps them understand and responsibly manage a wider range of relationships as they mature, and teaches them the respect for diversity that is needed in today's "global village.” Beyond lesson time, students also find aspects of character education in assemblies, group activities, and across many charity events, which aims at helping them accomplish inner transformation.
Community Service and Charities
A charity project called “Seeds of Hope” is in operation at YCIS. The project is a system-wide commitment to help build schools in places of need, one school annually in every mainland China province or city where there is a YCIS campus. All students and staff of our YCIS campuses will focus on this singular charitable drive, and fundraising goals will be set. By the Seeds of Hope project, YCIS campuses are able to bring love and charity, in the form of educational opportunity and support, to many of the poor and disadvantaged children of mainland China.
YCIS has established close ties with local charities and raised funds for them. These charities support less privileged people or those who live with disasters or sicknesses. Our students, staff and parents join hands in raising funds and take part in event co-ordination. As part of the IB curriculum, students participate in the Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) programme, which is designed to raise students' awareness of the needs of their local and global communities.

At YCIS, as part of our initiative to prepare students to be global citizens, we strive to educate our students to be good caretakers of the environment through initiatives both on and off campus. All students are taught to follow the “reduce, reuse and recycle” philosophy. Students are taught to practise “being green” through community and worldwide programmes such as Earth Hour and World Green Day. We all share the world, and YCIS teachers and students are doing their part in keeping the world beautiful.
