Weekly Update 2/18

Dear Members and Friends of JASH,

The Japan-America Society of Hawaii (JASH) is pleased to announce the selection of four Junior Ambassadors (JAs) to represent JASH and Hawaii at the 33rd Annual Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC) in summer 2021.

The APCC is a cultural exchange program that deepens participant’s appreciation for the cultures of other nations and regions, and promotes mutual understanding and friendship, nurtures international awareness in young people, and works towards world peace and co-existence. It is hoped that the JAs will build an international network of friends. Typically, the homestay and global camp is held in Fukuoka, Japan, where the students meet over 200 fellow Junior Ambassadors from 40 countries and cities in the Asia-Pacific region in a global youth camp. The program also includes a homestay, where JAs live with a Japanese host family.
