Host a Japanese Student
Expand your 4-H experience - host a Japanese student for one month! Many 12-16 year olds would like to experience Canadian 4-H family life from late July to late August. For best choice apply before May 15, but inquiries will be accepted year-round.
Host a Chaperone Instead
If you can only host for two weeks, ask for an adult chaperone. You can learn a lot about Japan from “tutors” who are similar to 4-H club leaders. For best choice apply before May 15, but inquiries will be accepted year-round.
Canadian 4-H youth and adults have been exchanging to Japan since 1990. You, too, can take part in this exciting inter-cultural exchange and stay with a Japanese family for four weeks from mid-July to mid-August. To travel with the group, apply before March 1.
Nihongo (language) Exchange, a three-week Japanese immersion course, is offered starting in late June. Live with a family in Tokyo, attend classes and practice what you have learned downtown! Then start the summer exchange. Apply by February 1.
Work a year in Japan for one of the Exchange Partners! Applicants should have traveled to Japan on a summer exchange, be 18-24 years old and preferably have had one year of post-secondary education. Reasonable wages, wonderful experience!
Adult and Family Exchanges
Why let the kids have all the fun? Exchange as a chaperone or as a couple or a family, in the spring, summer or fall! Student year-long exchanges also available.
