Looking for an enriching experience for your teen between the ages of 14 - 18? The City of Edmonds Sister City Commission will send a delegation of up to 15 students, ages 14 – 18, to their Sister City of Hekinan, Japan, during the summer of 2017 in mid-July for two weeks. Then, in early August, a student delegation from Hekinan will visit the Edmonds area for two weeks.
These student exchanges are part of the mission of the Edmonds Sister City Commission which is “to promote international communication and understanding through exchanges of people, ideas, and culture” and they have been taking place for over 23 years.
While in Hekinan, the students will stay with host families. Students and their families will be financially responsible for their roundtrip airfare, as well as a portion of the cost for chaperones. Edmonds area students who are interested in participating are encouraged to visit the Commission’s webpage for an application packet and more information. Application deadline has been extended to Thursday, March 23, 2017.
