Press CenterReturn to menuNearly 50 CCIP J-1 interns (www.theccip.com) traveled to the nation's capital over the weekend. The students from a dozen universities in East Asia took a bus from New York City to Washington DC to learn about the branches of government in person.
This visit offered the exchange visitors greater insight into the American government and a chance to expand their cultural experience.
In the morning, the exchange visitors met with Congresswoman Grace Meng, a Democratic member of the House of Representatives for New York State. She was available for a meet-and-greet in which the students had their pictures taken. Then, they toured Capitol Hill with Kevin Crowley from the US Department of State's Bureau of education and Cultural Affairs. After the tour, the group split into smaller group and toured around the DC areas.
