The “Through and Beyond Taekwondo” project partners with Guofeng Junior High School in Hualien County, which is also home to Nanjing 2014 YOG medallists. Summer camps (annually) and after-school sessions (throughout the year) are hosted for elementary school children and led by middle and high school students on the taekwondo team, allowing the more senior athletes to build leadership skills and give back to the community. Children from low-income families participate at reduced or no cost. Nanjing 2014 YOG Coach and Head Coach of Guofeng, Chen Liao-shia, also hosts between six and eight students in her home.
