The short term youth exchange program is a partnership between District 7475 serving northern and central New Jersey and District 2670 Shikoku, Japan.  Each year our district sends 30 students and leaders to Japan the first three weeks of July and District 2670 sends 30 students and leaders to us the first three weeks of August.  The students and leaders enjoy a variety of activities during their visit.  The program ties into Rotay's goal of building good will and friendship.  This is the 42nd year the program has occurred.  Pictured above are the Japanese students, leaders visiting the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.  For additional information on this program or to be considered as a leader/chaperone, contact Jim Allison of he Madison Club at jra188@aol.com.  Full program details are on the District website at www.njrotary.org
