About us.

Ameson Education and Cultural Exchange Foundation’s Ameson Year in China program (AYC) was officially launched in the autumn of 2012. The AYC program was created to echo the 100,000 Strong Initiative, an agreement reached between Chinese Chairman Hu Jintao and American President Barack Obama in 2009 that aimed to build ties between China and America. The goal was to send 100,000 young Americans to China to study and build a strong cultural relationship between the two countries. The goal was achieved in 2014.
