The Manitowoc International Relations Association (MIRA) is looking for student ambassadors for the 2023 Student Exchange Program with Manitowoc's sister-city, Kamogawa, Japan. The trip will be July 20-30, 2023.
The Student Exchange Program began in 1995 and, with few exceptions, has been held on an annual basis. The opportunity for six students to experience Japanese culture, family life, and history is life-changing. Upon their return, Kamogawa students will accompany our students for a similar cultural exchange visit. Participation in both Japan and at home creates lasting memories and friendship among students and families.
Applicants must be a resident of the City of Manitowoc or a student in a Manitowoc-area high school. Applicants will submit an essay and letters of recommendation on or by March 10, 2023. Click here for more information on the program and how to apply.
