Shanghai Young Bakers

Economie Sociale et Solidaire

Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB) is a charity program providing free training in French bakery to marginalised Chinese youth aged 17 to 23, enabling them to find qualified jobs and lead independent lives after graduation.

SYB empowers disadvantaged young adults who had to drop out of school because of their family situation (parents’ death, sickness, disability or imprisonment) and are excluded from stable employment.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and donors, SYB students follow a one-year training where they learn valuable skills such as French bakery and pastry, Chinese bakery, life skills and English, combined with practical internships at 5-star hotels. Due to the high demand of qualified bakers on the Chinese market, 30 students each year start a new life as bakers or pastry chefs and are able to support themselves and their families.

The charity program was founded in 2008. In 2011, we created a social enterprise that offers a wide range of services to support the program, such as baking classes and workshops, bakery and pastry catering services, sales at weekend markets, and which supporting individuals and companies to contribute to the success and sustainability of the program.

SYB is managed by a small but dynamic French-Chinese team, and operates under the governance of Chi Heng Foundation.

Opportunités & missions pour nos étudiants

At Shanghai Young Bakers, interns get a chance to understand first-hand the work of a growing international non-profit organization in a Chinese environment, and see how we address and manage the transition to a social enterprise model.

Interns are fully integrated into the team, trained to understand our challenges and working methods, and entrusted with responsibilities to contribute directly to the success of our organisation and make a meaningful impact.

We especially welcome students who are keen to gain experience in NGO management, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and/or Corporate Communication / PR across a wide range of companies, and who want to develop professional communication and organisational skills in a multicultural environment.


Over the years, several Sciences Po students and alumni have made a difference by contributing at Shanghai Young Bakers; they've also inspired many of our Chinese interns to apply for some of Sciences Po's programs, and help develop a curious, international, ambitious and open-minded work atmosphere.
