Living in Yantai

You may have heard the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.” We know that for the child to succeed, the whole family needs to be supported. We strive to connect families with community resources to empower the family to self-sufficiency. We live in a generous community with a lot of support. We connect parents to resources for food, clothing, housing, English as a Second Language, Adult Education programs, and more. Click to learn more about local Community Resources.

YHIS recognize that how hard it is for families to transition to a new, foreign country. We strive to connect families with necessary community resources to help them adjust. YHIS has gathered useful information about shopping, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, sightseeing, and important places into a small booklet called Yantai City Guide. Many staff and parents have contributed to making the guide. We will continue to update the information on a regular basis. We hope that this serves you well as a guide for your life in Yantai.
