What is the Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI)?
The mission of the Chinese Youth Initiative is to develop youth leadership in the Chinese American community. Since 1994, CYI has been educating youth about the issues that Chinese Americans face, and has been providing youth with experience in grassroots organizing. CYI is a program of the Chinese Progressive Association based in Chinatown. It has opportunities year round, including a summer internship program.

What is CYI’s Summer Internship Program?
The internship program is an opportunity to understand the issues Chinese Americans face and how we can take collective action to improve our lives! By learning about Asian American history, Chinatown, and the core principles of organizing, you will be grounded in the community and what it takes to make transformative change. The CYI Summer Internship is a seven-week experience for high school-aged youth that focuses on the experiences and issues of Chinese Americans in the Greater Boston area. Through interactive workshops, discussions, videos, guest speakers, field trips, and hands-on projects, you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself, others, and the community. You will also not just be learning, but taking action! This can include education projects, outreach to community members, and attending and planning protests. Issues that past youth have worked on in the past include worker rights, affordable housing, and a Chinatown library. Youth who have a strong investment in their community, who are bilingual in Chinese, and come from immigrant families are strongly encouraged to apply.

You will find out by early May if you are accepted into the program and there will be an orientation scheduled for late May or early June. All accepted applicants will be expected to participate in the Chinatown Bike-A-Thon, Saturday, June 1st. The internship kicks off with an overnight retreat from Monday, July 1st to Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019 and will meet on Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00am to 4:00pm from Monday July 8th to Thursday August 15th, 2019. In addition to the dates and times listed, participants must be able to commit to some weekend and evening activities, averaging 20-25 hours per week. Interns will receive $429 every 2 weeks (a total stipend of $1500) for the duration of the summer program. Overnight retreat and other sessions after retreat are mandatory for participation.
