Student internships. Ten Yale students went to work in China this summer as interns in the Yale-China Association's Service Internship Program. The students had the opportunity to experience life in contemporary China while gaining valuable professional experience working at tasks ranging from training English teachers in the country's rural interior to working aboard a wooden sailing junk in Hong Kong harbor that is home to a floating camp for disabled and disadvantaged children.

Since 1998, Yale-China's internship program has placed 65 Yale students in China in the summer months in fields including HIV/AIDS care and education, environmental science, non-profit management, and education. This year Diana Lin '04 and Patricia Moon '05 interned in Beijing; James Larsen '04 and Ikponmwosa Ekunwe '06 interned in Southwest China in Kunming; Keane Shum '05 interned in Southwest China in Guizhou; and Jana Sikdar '06, Kaitlyn Trigger '06 and David Zax '06 interned in Hong Kong.

Andrea Kanner '04 and Vinh-Tung Nguyen '05 were paired with Chinese undergraduates and divided their time between New Haven and Hong Kong, doing a cross-cultural comparison of non-profit work in the fields of youth services and HIV/AIDS care. In New Haven they interned at LEAP for Kids and Leeway Inc., respectively, and then spent the second half of their summer at similar organizations in Hong Kong.
