Since 2010, we have been connecting the world with our arms of excellent international educators, and today California International Teachers Association carries on the mission to "change the world one international teacher at a time", through training, teaching, consulting, and funding.

CITA not only works hard to make competitive teachers in the international market but also makes a further step to lead entrepreneurial educators to the next level.

Many teachers find their next jobs here, more are creating their new ventures with us.

The California International Teachers Association is a for-profit international education institute formed by a great number of international teachers, educators, participating in international educational endeavors. We stand together hand in hand to provide the global community with the highest-quality teaching to multicultural students, international students, and schools from all over the world.  For the first time, students who used to have a very limited quality of education will now have our help, anywhere, anytime.  Our international teachers become more successful through training, practicing and expanding their online skills. We are dedicated to discovering the best practices for Teaching to Multicultural Students, developing and applying state-of-the-art online teaching technology, sharing and delivering the best quality online teaching services, and effectively marketing through multiple channels to promote our value and philosophy throughout the States and beyond all borders.

CampChina™ 2008
Where everything started

August 2007, a year before the Beijing Olympic Games, our leadership team arrived in China and became the role models of a group of college students who were eager to interact, explore, and acquire new knowledge, fresh cultures, and a lot more. The bridge across the border, culture, perspectives and so on significant barriers had then broken the ground and started to rocket up. During these 12 years of adjustment, development, exploration, acquisition, and cooperation, BRIDGE has built an ever-strong foundation.

California International Teachers Association,  founded with BridgeKinder, is a group of elite international educators who hold a global perspective, embrace multi-culture, and are open-minded to different opinions. The CITA started its foundation in 2008 in Shandong, CHINA when a group of international teachers from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia got together for mutual support in Taian, China. 

Knowledge knows no country because it belongs to humanity, and it's the torch that illuminates the world. CITA will carry on the tradition of BridgeKinder, and fully commit itself to spreading the light and reaching more children around the world.
