Since our foundation in 2018, SVYL has hosted a myriad of exciting and unique events in order to connect with our peers throughout the world, raise funds for charitable causes, and give back to our community.
SVYL members volunteered at the Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, a food bank, in the winter to package food for distribution around the neighborhoods of Silicon Valley.

We decided to collaborate with the Princeton Footnotes (a cappella group) to host a musical event during the fall. SVYL members were in charge of arranging this event by creating ticket systems, designing flyers, and more. In addition, we have other musical groups like Colorful Universe and New Ballet to perform additional music for the audience. All of the money earned from this event will be donated to a fundraiser as a way to give back to the community.

Members of SVYL went on an outing in Lake Chabot to practice leadership skills such as independence, teamwork, and responsibility in an unfamiliar environment. From cooking meals to going on hikes, members continuously had to practice the skills of being a great leader to make the outing experience the best it can be, indirectly improving future SVYL events.
We hosted the annual Senior Panel to celebrate the seniors and their contributions to SVYL throughout the years. Through an interview format, students asked seniors questions and evaulated their high school experience. Congratulations to all seniors and good luck in college!
Virtual Spring Festival
During the COVID pandemic, we celebrated Spring and the Chinese New Year through online festivities. The students at SVYL arranged and hosted a joyous New Year party, involving singing, chess, calligraphy, painting, and more. We hope that everyone can spend time with their family and friends during this time, in person or virtually.
We hosted a day-long yard sale consisting of morning and afternoon shifts. The members of SVYL worked together to create posters, track earnings, and welcome customers. All of the money gained from the yard sale directly gets donated to a fundraiser to help the children suffering from Russia and Ukraine tensions.
To commemorate the members of SVYL who earned The President's Volunteer Service Award, we hosted an event to celebrate their achievements. The event consisted of a tasty dinner along with the award presentation itself. Additionally, members of SVYL performed music, games, and more for the audience.
2022 Spring Festival
Similar to last year's Spring Festival, we created a program consisting of music, culture, and art to share with people across China. Members of SVYL worked extremely hard to create the best videos to share with others as we celebrate Spring Festival!

SVYL members went to a camping site to not only take a break off of school but to practice leadership skills. Through developing skills such as teamwork, respect, and responsibility, SVYL members are more equipped for arranging future events.

RainbowBridge Summer Camp
We hosted a 2-week long summer camp at Shanghai, where we worked with 100+ high school and middle school students to teach them english, mathematics, science, writing, and many other subjects.
The members of SVYL showed off their astounding talents in our 2 hour long fundraiser, featuring performances in singing, dancing, acting, music, comedy, and more. We raised over 2000$ for charity and for supporting SVYL throughout the year.
