As a followup to my previous post on planning a summer vacation, I found a web site for the "Chinese Cultural Center" in San Francisco, California that offers an Internship that is a one year program that explores the interns Chinese American family history and genealogy. The intern explores their heritage in America for a period of time and then they return to China visiting their maternal and paternal ancestral family villages. The interns experience culminates during the Chinese New Year Festival celebrated at the Chinese Cultural Center, where the individual shares with family, friends and the community in general, the experiences and feelings of their research and quest for learning more about their ancestral heritage.
After further research on this website, I noted that the program is currently taking applications for 2008's internship. The applications are available online and have to be completed by January 31, 2008. Please check their website to see if you meet their qualifications for application. This program seems to be a wonderful experience for those that participate. For more information, please click this link Chinese Cultural Center.
