The Nikkei Community Internship (NCI) is a paid eight-week program designed to foster and connect young leaders to the Japantown community.  The NCI program promotes awareness of the three remaining Japantown's (San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles) and to get youth more involved in the Japanese-American community.

One day a week is reserved for leadership training, during which all of the Norcal interns gather for workshops and meetings with community leaders.  Interns also attend three statewide retreats, one in each Japantown, during which both the Southern California and Northern California interns meet and work together.

If you are a College, University or recent graduate and interested in applying please submit your application no later than Sunday, April 3rd  
The program will run between June 13 through August 5, 2022.

Quotes from past JAMsj Interns:

  • “I am truly grateful for the NCI program because it was the perfect opportunity for me, who had never known the Japantown and JA community, to start getting involved.” Yuriko Akeyama, NCI 2020 Intern 
  • “NCI is truly a unique program that has given me the opportunity to grow professionally as well as learn more about the community around me.”  Kimi Nakajima, NCI 2020 Intern
