U.S. Embassy & Consulates in South Africa - Community College Initiative. The Community College Initiative (CCI) is a U. S. Department of State exchange program for technical and vocational students from South Africa.

The CCI program provides participants with a non-degree, academic-year program at a U.S. community college designed to build participants’ technical skills in applied fields, enhance their leadership capabilities, and strengthen their English language proficiency.

Participants do not need to be current Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College or University of Technology students to apply, though they are welcome.

The CCI Program seeks to foster mutual understanding between the citizens of the United States and the citizens of participating CCI countries.

The CCI Program encourages a holistic learning and exchange experience and focuses on five program pillars: academics, cultural exchange, service learning, internships, and leadership and action planning.
