Project Pengyou Celebrates the launch of National Chapters and the “We are all #Pengyou” Campaign with Inaugural Pengyou Day, Nov. 20th!

Held on a Thursday during the State Department’s International Education Week, our inaugural Pengyou Day was a rousing success. With the help of our nationwide Project Pengyou chapter teams as well as our signature partners, Asia Society and the Committee of 100, we celebrated building friendships between Americans and Chinese while trying to deepen engagement and mutual understanding through the launch of simultaneous events across the country!
