100,000 Strong Foundation

The US-China Strong Foundation is a nonprofit organization that seeks to strengthen US-China relations by investing in a new generation of leaders who have the knowledge and skills to engage with China. Established in 2013 as the 100,000 Strong Foundation – and relaunched in 2016 as the US-China Strong Foundation – the organization leads a national movement to ensure the next generation of US leaders is equipped to engage effectively with China: a global strategic power, the second largest economy in the world and America’s fastest growing trade partner.

US-China Strong leads three signature campaigns that focus on supporting the full spectrum of American youth, spanning from our youngest students through young professionals entering China-related careers.

1 Million Strong: 1 Million Strong is a national campaign to expand fivefold Mandarin language learning in US K-12 schools from approximately 200,000 to 1 million by 2020. Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping announced this ambitious effort in 2015.

100K Strong: Announced in 2009, 100K Strong is a presidential initiative whose initial goal of seeing 100,000 Americans studying in China by 2014 was surpassed. US-China Strong continues to work with both Washington and Beijing to expand and diversify US study abroad to China.

US-China Alumni Ambassador Network: The Foundation’s robust and growing US-China Alumni Ambassador Network engages American and Chinese youth who have participated in cross-cultural exchange programs, connecting and cultivating these future leaders as they pursue professional careers.

Backed by high-level support from both Washington and Beijing, US governors and members of Congress, and American and Chinese business leaders, US-China Strong is committed to dramatically increasing the number and diversity of young Americans learning Mandarin and gaining meaningful experience in US-China relations. By simultaneously engaging prominent US and Chinese students and stakeholders, US-China Strong is shaping a more constructive future for US-China relations.
