We run our own summer internship program in Japan known as JCHIP or Japan Children's Home Internship Program.

Together with the Japanese staff and native college-student interns, UC Davis interns will share in the lives of school-age youngsters, doing chores, playing games, and overseeing activities. As an intern from abroad, it is important for the UC Davis student to be a model international representative and help open the children's eyes to the rest of the world. Currently eight children's homes in different parts of Japan accept UC Davis interns. Homes are located in: Kumamoto, Kyoto, Saitama, Tokyo, Fukushima, Aichi (2 homes, Shinshiro and Toyokawa), and Sendai.
