A special group of international students has arrived at Santa Rosa Junior College, one of 14 campuses across 11 states, to begin the 2016-2017 Community College Initiative (CCI) Program. CCI is a program of the U.S. State Department that provides participants with quality educational study at U.S. community colleges and is designed to build technical skills, enhance leadership capabilities, and strengthen English language proficiency.
Audrey Le Baudour, Program Coordinator for the CCI program also recognizes the impact that CCI students have on Sonoma County during their 11-month stay. “In addition to obtaining a certificate in their individual disciplines, each student volunteers a minimum of 125 hours within our community and participates in an unpaid internship of at least 75 hours.
We are fortunate to have 3 of these students presenting to our Rotary Club on November 16th. They are Angelica Hinestroza and Samuel M. Perilla Ch. from Columbia and Hermes ADJE from the Ivory Coast. They will be telling our members about themselves, their country, their experience and what they hope to do when they return to their countries.
