Since 1980, the Rotary Club of Wakayama-West and the Rotary Club of Concord-Diablo has had an “informal” cultural exchange program. Each July, students between the ages of 13 and 22 have traveled to Japan or the US for a period of 2-3 weeks.
The club provides the airfare, and takes care of any expenses while the student is in the hosting country. All of the students who have been privileged enough to go agree that the exchange was an experience of a lifetime!
