Charles B. Wang Ice Hockey Project Hope

The ultimate goal of Project Hope is simple: To provide young Chinese athletes with access to educational opportunities.

Project Hope will endeavor to create opportunities for cultural exchange through international youth hockey events and by promoting Project Hope scholarship placements in the United States.

By working closely with local and provincial officials in the cities of Harbin and Qiqihar, Heilongjiang Province, China, the New York Islanders have embarked upon an un-precedented multi-faceted educations initiatives that will undoubtedly change the lives of young athletes forever: The Charles B. Wang Ice Hockey Project Hope.
 

Learning the Language

Project Hope begins by enrolling Chinese scholar-athletes in New York Islanders- affiliated youth hockey programs in and around Heilongjiang Province. Once enrolled, the students must study English as part of their regular curriculum with a goal of achieving fluency in both written and conversational english.

To demonstrate a developing English language competency, students will undergo age appropriate assesments/examinations on a regular basis. Once the students have achieved fluency, they will be eligible to apply for a Project Hope scholarship to continue their education at a high school in the United States.
