Celebrating Cultural Exchange - J Day 2018 1

CHI had a wonderful turnout at Lucky Strike, San Francisco’s premier bowling alley, on Monday, August 6th for our annual J Day event, part of a nationwide celebration of J-1 international exchange every summer.  CHI participants from Work & Travel, Internship/Training and Au Pair were invited, and over 15 countries were represented. Guests also included host employers as well as American coworkers and friends.

The afternoon was filled with games, including billiards, table tennis, trivia, and of course lots of bowling!  In keeping with the theme of “Eat. Play. Give”, CHI partnered with Cards of Hope and Color Give Smile to create cards for foster youth and senior citizens.  Participants decorated cards that will brighten the day of others at times throughout the year.  We are proud to help give back to these great organizations.  All participants were also asked to give back by bringing toys and school supplies that were collected for foster youth.

Delicious food was enjoyed throughout the afternoon.  Winners of the games and photo contests took home great prizes, including gift certificates to local tourist attractions and popular restaurants.  The event was a lot of fun and participants left the party with new J Day t-shirts and CHI goodie bags!

San Francisco wasn’t the only party for this auspicious occasion – CHI was proud to be a part of additional J Day events across the country, with participants gathering in Galveston, TX, Williamsburg, VA, Orlando, FL, Minneapolis, MN, Myrtle Beach, SC, Old Orchard Beach, ME, Altoona, IA, and Wildwood, NJ to celebrate J-1 international exchange.
