Cici Qiao Awarded Position for the Friendship Beyond Borders Summer Program in Germany

"I am excited to use what I know about conflict resolution and intercultural exchange and to help improve the lives of young German students."

As participant in this inter-cultural youth education program in rural eastern Germany, Cici's primary task will be to help students aged 16-22 learn about international understanding and love of other cultures. Cici will be teaching these students during the month of July about the dangers of the right-extremism and xenophobia prevalent in the East where joblessness is high. During this program, Cici will receive free funding for room and board, travel within the project region, and project activities. If you are a CSB/SJU student interested in this program for summer 2008 please send an email message to Cici, we are proud of your using your German skills to promote cultural appreciation among young people in Germany!
