This year (2019-2020) we have 27 participants representing 10 countries studying at Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria and Annandale Campuses. Participants are studying Media, Business, Marketing, IT, Meetings and Event Planning, and Early Childhood Education.

During their program year, NOVA CCI Participants complete volunteering hours, a professional internship, and leadership and cultural exchange activities.

Please visit the 2019-2020 Participants page to learn more about each individual participant.
