Participants sought for 4-H exchange to Japan

Dec.1 is the deadline to apply to an Alaska 4-H summer exchange program to Japan. Alaska youths, ages 13 to 18, may apply for the exchange, which is July 11 to Aug. 9, 2014. Participants are hosted by a Japanese youth of the same gender and similar age and share in their daily activities.

Participants do not need to speak Japanese. Outbound exchange coordinator Jill Holmgren said they just need a curiosity about other cultures and an interest and willingness to try new things and make new friends. Youth not currently in 4-H may apply. See www.alaska4h.org/outbound.html or email japanalaska@gmail.com.
