Join the team

You’re invited to become a board member, seasonal intern, or special projects coordinator!

Board Member Positions

The CCI Board is responsible for oversight and development of CCI as an organization.  Our team works closely together, meeting three or more times a month on Saturdays to discuss the big picture vision, strategy, and direction here at CCI.  What we're concerned with is CCI's present progress and future success.

  • Join a group of Chinese adoptee leaders passionate about the Chinese adoptee community

  • Design the future of the Chinese adoption community

  • Offer support and guidance to fellow leadership members

  • Sharpen your collaborative and analytic skills

  • Tackle real world problems and see your ideas in action

We turn over the CCI Board in June and July. Board Members serve for at least one CCI year, from August 1st of the first year to July 31st of the next. Please check back then to see whether there are any open opportunities.  

Seasonal interns

Seasonal Internship Program.jpg

CCI is excited to launch our official seasonal internship program, new for Summer 2019! Our seasonal internship program allows adoptees to make time-limited commitments to learn about the inner workings of CCI, give back to the adoption community, and hone vital and transferable leadership and communication skills.

We are opening three seasonal intern positions a year at this time: one in the Fall, Spring, and Summer. Click here to learn more and apply!

Special Projects Coordinators

Occasionally, CCI Board Members will assemble a special committee of highly dedicated, highly responsible, and extremely innovative Chinese adoptees to lead specific short term projects from conception to completion. This committee is separate from the CCI Board and Committee, and their meeting times are set at their own discretion. Examples of past Special Projects include planning for the CCI portion of the HTS Youth Conference. Our special project coordinator program is a great opportunity to see what a leadership position at CCI would be like and to get involved with a shorter - term commitment here at CCI.  

I attended the China Care Conference held at Harvard University. It was a great opportunity to meet other people, present with other China’s Children International representatives, and attend adoptee-only session. I had the opportunity to met people from different China Care Clubs across the country. For the afternoon sessions I, along with Charlotte, Laney, and Laura, gave a presentation on how members of the China Care Clubs could support the adoptee community as mentors and how they could continue to support the adoptee community as the adoptees age. I spent the last part of the conference attending the adoptee only sessions. There was a presentation on “Getting Involved in the adoptee community,” which included a Skype call with members of Adopteen, and an adult adoptee panel who talked about their adoptee experiences. It was a great to listen to the stories of older adoptees and share my own experiences with other members of the adoptee community.
