From 2010- 2014, SEPLAA Foundation inducted an intern from CGA-NYU (Centre for Global Affairs-New York University) every year.

This program helps in building up on a global community encouraging the youth from around the world to think outside the box and take up challenges to give back to the society no matter which part of the globe they belong to.
