Get to Know CCNY – Youbin Tu


Youbin Tu Photo Why is CCNY’s mission important to you? Exploring the rationale beneath layers of data is the most joyful thing for me. As a member of the dynamic group, I was excited to have lots of chances to encounter different healthcare related projects. I know we are not supposed to save the world but we are really helping people to live longer and happier.

What do you like to do in your spare time? Soccer is my favorite sports game since I was a kid, whenever possible, I will throw myself into the filed for a couple of hours every weekend until being completely exhausted. Besides that, I like to go fishing only if I could successfully get approvals from my beloved wife and two cute daughters.

What inspires you? Curiosity about mysteries in nature inspired me to solve puzzles, which makes me submerged in basic science field for quite a while before I joined CCNY. Now I am going to continue enjoying from solving puzzles but only for real social ones.

Why are you in nonprofit work? Working for interests could bring much more fun to me than just working for living. Besides, the working environment seems to be much more friendly and flexible.

What emotional reasons? I like our team, every member is eager to learn new stuff and to apply it right away.

Who is a hero of yours? My dad is always the hero in my heart, he is a great man and could an amazing variety of jobs, for which I would never have a chance to learn.

Paid Paid Vacation


This year, in order to support wellness within our agency, our company started a new Paid, Paid Vacation bi-monthly event. Every two months, we draw a random name from everyone who is staff at CCNY. Once a name is pulled, that person must take two days off and they receive $300 dollars to use during that time. These days are in addition to their normal paid time off. The staff person must use the money towards those wellness days.

Amanda was the lucky winner of April’s drawing for a Paid Paid Vacation! This couldn’t have come at a better time for her, as she was planning on taking a big vacation in May, a cruise on the Adriatic Sea!

Amanda said, “While this vacation was really fun, one thing I was able to do thanks to the paid, paid vacation was go off-roading and exploring the Lovcen National Forest in Montenegro.

Below are some pictures of the stunning view of the Bay of Kotor from the National Forest, as well as a sign in a small village inside the forest, and me standing close to the top of one of the peaks.”
