The Nikkei Community Internship (NCI) Program is a statewide initiative, which allows college students to support the work of community organizations while increasing their understanding of contemporary issues affecting Japanese Americans. Coordinated by JCYC in Northern California, the Japantown Community Congress of San Jose and Kizuna in Southern California, the program supports the development of the next generation of community leaders.

The program consists of an eight-week summer internship where interns are placed at organizations such as the Japanese Community and Cultural Center of Northern California, National Japanese American Historical Society, Go For Broke National Education Center and the Little Tokyo Service Center. One day of each week is reserved for the interns to visit Japanese American organizations to meet with community leaders and expand their knowledge of emerging issues and existing services and resources.
