JOYN program is designed by JOYN Global Culture, INC., and was founded by Stanford Ph.D. graduate, Dr. Sheng Chen. Joyn understands the importance of expanding one's horizons and developing a holistic sense of the world and of oneself. The goal of JOYN Program is to improve participants' English language skills, expose them to American cultures, expand their horizons, help them view the world through a wider lens, push them to ask questions, assert their opinion, and explore the unfamiliar. JOYN is a word in English script that sounds like footprint in Chinese. JOYN hopes all participants of the program will follow the footsteps of successful, self-made people they get in touch with in the program and encourage them to positively contribute to the world from all angles.
