In the midst of their summer program, the CCIP J-1 interns ( spent a Saturday together at Six Flags Great Adventure. The amusement park, which is located in New Jersey and is the second largest in the world, includes 13 roller coasters and dozens of other rides and games spread over eleven themed areas.

Six Flags Great Adventure has millions of visitors each year and is one of the region's most popular amusement parks. Roller coasters include Batman: The Ride and El Toro, one of the fastest and tallest wooden roller coasters in the world. There are also two water rides and a water park.

"We're working hard this summer and are having a lot of interesting educational experiences," one of the activity leaders remarked. "So visiting Six Flags was like a fun reward."

Over the course of the summer, more than 70 exchange visitors will take part in internships and cross-cultural activities. These group activities included Broadway shows, visiting the One World Trade Center, and meeting with local community leaders. Following the program's conclusion, most of the participants will return to begin their next school year.

One student said, "With everything I'm learning and experiencing during CCIP, I know I've gained a lot of skills that I'll be able to use at school and in my career."


The Cross Cultural Internship Program (CCIP) is a cultural exchange internship program that takes place in New York City every year. It is dedicated to fostering mutually beneficial East-West cultural exchange, targeting exchange visitors from Asia and the Pacific region.

CCIP provides exchange visitors and host organizations the opportunity to exchange insights, ideas, and experiences. Through the program, participants acquire practical knowledge and cultural experiences, and host organizations connect with the international community and stay abreast of trends in the global marketplace.

CCIP is organized by FUSIA Communications, one of the approximately 98 J-1 intern designated visa sponsors in the nation. FUSIA is responsible for the selection of interns as well as supporting and monitoring theĀ¬m during the program.

CCIP is a structured, full-placement internship program. Since 2008, CCIP has provided internship opportunities to over 850 exchange visitors. In 2015, 71 students were selected out of 1050 applicants. They were matched to 20-plus host organizations of diverse disciplines including government district offices, law firms, publishing houses, media firms, advertising agencies, real estate agencies, and more.
