Events, Tournaments & Conferences


Events, Tournaments & Conferences


Hosted in collaboration with our youth leagues and associations, Sunrise’s tournaments and conferences serve as a hub for competition, learning, and exchange across a network of connected peoples ranging from the local to international level.

To build a larger and stronger community of participants, Sunrise continues to establish more venues in new locations to expand access to our innovative events. In countries such as China, participation extends beyond centralized municipalities so more students from second and third tier cities can enjoy closer access to events, gaining exposure and experience in activities that have been met with ever-increasing demand.

Tournaments and conferences not only provide participants with the platform to refine their skills and knowledge with other like-minded individuals, but also reward them with the opportunity to gain recognition and acknowledgment from their peers, superiors, and influencers.

Training Institutes & Curriculum Development


Training Institutes & Curriculum Development


Sunrise offers extracurricular courses and comprehensive curricula for schools, and organizes a number of complementary exchange programs and training institutes throughout the year.

During the summer, our leagues host training institutes and seminars that allow students to train intensively with coaches and lecturers with world class credentials in their chosen extracurricular activities. During school breaks and the regular academic year, Sunrise organizes exchange programs to help students gain international exposure in an academic setting. Ultimately, our students come home with experiences and advantages that they can apply to their performance in the classroom and the communities that they are a part of.

Our classroom-ready content provides teachers with the academic foundation and supplementary components to take extracurricular education in schools to a whole new level. Each course package may include but is not limited to the fundamental curriculum, lesson plans, practical exercises, interactive activities, project ideas, and others. Eventually, generations of students with experience in our various extracurricular activities create cultures of critical thinking and competitiveness in their schools.

Media Production & Youth Lifestyle


Media Production & Youth Lifestyle


Sunrise runs two youth-oriented lifestyle brands: Illumi and Aqmen.

Illumi represents the life of the global high school student, focusing on international think pieces, creative pursuits and the latest lifestyle trends, written for and by students. It is a multi-channel media outlet, integrating online and offline platforms, including a paper magazine, digital magazine, website, app and Wechat account. Through these different channels, Illumi creates and fosters a community dedicated to celebrating individuality, creativity and a global mindset. To complement our media outlets, Illumi hosts galas in various Chinese cities throughout the year. These galas gather Illumi readers, contributors and publishers for an evening of excitement, games and talent competition. To find out where and when the next Illumi Gala is hosted, please click here.

Aqmen is a media platform made for young people to develop their professional skills so that they are better equipped to face the challenges posed by a globalized world. Through organizing a series of exciting and relevant educational conferences, professional workshops, and networking parties, Aqmen gathers and presents resources needed for young adults to thrive in the fields of their interests. We fulfill our purpose by having a strong presence, both online and offline, through our magazine, our app, conferences, and Nexus events.

Speech & Performance Evaluation


Speech & Performance Evaluation


The Speech and Performance Evaluation (SPE) is an interactive, multi-dimensional portfolio builder for students that partake in our extracurriculars.

The SPE mission is simple: give students and university admissions officers the power to assess another dimension of students—the excellence achieved outside the classroom through extracurriculars. Our belief is that extracurricular performance, for which students prepare for countless hours, is ultimately a better indicator of college readiness than standardized tests like the SAT and TOEFL. 

SPE features a multilevel badge system to track genuine skill development and improvement in a given extracurricular. All badges include an audio-visual assessment with a holistic written component that gauges college preparedness and likelihood to succeed in a college classroom. All our badges are verifiable both online and through the accompanying video component. To find out more about SPE, click here
