Nikkei Community Internship's 10th Anniversary!


NCI Sponsors

Southwest is the official airline of NCI, who has graciously sponsored this program for many years.  Union Bank is also a significant contributor to NCI, who has shown full support since the very beginning and continually looks for more ways to stay involved with NCI and the community.  Among NCI's other sponsors are The Aratani CARE grant, Asian American Studies Center, UCLA, Sansei Legacy, Japanese American Community Services, CJACLC Board Members, Nikkei Community Internship Alumni, JACL San Fernando Chapter, JACL Sacramento Chapter, and JACL San Jose Chapter.

I want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our generous sponsors!

In this picture, Southern California NCI 2011 interns and Alan Nishio, the current Chair of CJACLC, the sponsoring organization of NCI, take a plane ride back to LA from San Jose for opening retreat.

Kim Delevett, Southwest Airlines Corporate Community Affairs Manager, had this to say about the continual support of the NCI program:

"With an emphasis on leadership, education and outreach, Southwest is passionate about giving back to the many diverse communities we serve. Southwest is proud to sponsor the NCI Nikkei program, because our young leaders need opportunities to better understand the past in order to help preserve the three remaining Japantowns for future generations.
