Winter 2016

escc hekinanThe Edmonds Sister City Commission is currently accepting applications for the 2016 student exchange program. Application deadline is February 29, 2016. For more information and an application packet please visit our webpage here.

The student exchange program is part of the Edmonds Sister City Commission's relationship with Hekinan Japan. Every summer a delegation of students from Edmonds goes to Hekinan for a two week stay and then a delegation of students from Hekinan comes to Edmonds for a two week stay. Students stay with host families and must provide a portion of their chaperone's travel costs as well as covering their own travel costs and spending money. Chaperones also stay with host families. These host family stays provide students and chaperones with a very rich cultural experience.

During that time student delegates and ESCC Commissioners will help with washing dishes, pouring beverages, making milkshakes, busing tables and seating guests. In return, the delegation will receive 20% of sales, 100% of cash tips and 50% of the credit card tips. We encourage everyone to come meet our Edmonds' delegates and Sister City Commissioners and support this great program. The Red Onion Burgers is located at 21005 44th Ave. W, Suite 101 in Mountlake Terrace.

Stay tuned for more information on our 2016 student delegation!
