Sister City Chaperones Opportunity

Release Date: 

On behalf of the Pendleton Cultural Foundation, we invite you to consider chaperoning the students on the cultural exchange to Minamisoma, Japan in 2017. The chaperone is the responsible adult traveling with six high school students to Japan for two weeks in July. The chaperone and students fundraise to pay for the airfare to Japan. Once the group is in Japan, the bulk of the expenses, including meals and housing, are provided by our counterparts in Japan. The cultural exchange is an amazing experience to tour Japan and live with a Japanese family.
