Opportunity for Sophomores to Spend Junior Year in Japan

Kaua‘i Rotary Club is sponsoring a Youth Exchange for a student to spend their junior year in our Sister City, Moriyama, Japan. This program offers a fantastic opportunity for a student to learn about another culture and language and is life-changing. Ms. Rosie participated in this program as a high school junior and would be happy to talk with students wanting to know more about the experience.

A preliminary application form has been sent to all sophomore students. The deadline is THIS FRIDAY for this form to be completed. Those qualifying will continue the application process. A copy of this application can be found on our website on our Forms & Information Page for downloading. It's titled, "Sister City Moriyama- Kauai Rotary Youth Exchange-Preliminary Application (Word Document)."

Only one sophomore will be chosen. Japanese language skills are desired but not required. We encourage anyone who is even considering this opportunity to complete the application by the deadline.
