The past Sunday, CCIP J-1 interns were invited to attend the Youth Leadership Forum organized by China AIDS Fund. The event took place at the Sheraton East LaGuardia Hotel.

China AIDS Fund is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of medically, economically, and socially deprived children in China while cultivating heritage and leadership in youth of Chinese descent.

At the forum, CCIP J-1 interns listened to a variety of prominent Asian-American speakers, including Ti Hua Chang, an award-winning journalist, New York State Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou, and Charles Wang, a businessman and philanthropist who co-founded Computer Associates International, Inc. With their messages to the students, the speakers both educated and inspired.

"I was really motivated by the speakers," Julian, a student leader from the Nanyang Technological University, said after the forum. "Even though I'm still in school, it doesn't mean I can't be active in my community."

Another student from Macau added, "I greatly appreciated this opportunity because it allowed me to meet new people, and it was a chance to practice business networking skills. I was especially happy to meet students from the local Asian-American community."


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.
