Teen Outbound Programs to Norway, Korea, and Japan


Teens involved in 4-H are invited to participate in the 2016 summer exchange programs being offered by our national coordinator, States 4-H International Exchange of Seattle.  Virginia 4-H'ers who have been a part of these delegations in the past have had lots of fun and interesting experiences while staying with local host families. All of them have reported that life-long friends have been made and that they gained a year's worth of education in one month abroad.  Additionally, they have come to appreciate their own country, schools, and families more, too.

This year the countries being offered include Norway (June 29 – July 31, 2016) , Korea ( July 15 – August 10, 2016 ) , and Japan (July 15 – August 11, 2016; July 13 – August 11, 2016). All application packets and deposits are due to the State Coordinator listed below for the country for travel by December 1, 2015. For the required applications forms or further information, please contact the individuals listed below.  Request forms soon, as the application forms with the application fee must arrive no later than December 1, 2015, to the proper individual below so that there is time for processing on state level to then forward to the national office:
