Dec. 1 is the deadline to apply to an Alaska 4-H summer exchange program to Japan.

Alaska youths, ages 13 to 18, may apply for the exchange, which is July 11 to Aug. 9, 2014. Participants are hosted by a Japanese youth of the same gender and similar age and share in their daily activities.

Participants do not need to speak Japanese. Outbound exchange coordinator Jill Holmgren said they just need a curiosity about other cultures and an interest and willingness to try new things and make new friends. Youth not currently in 4-H may apply.

The exchange between 4-H and Japan has been ongoing for more than 40 years. For more information, visit www.alaska4h.org/outbound.html or email japanalaska@gmail.com. 4-H is a national youth development program administered in Alaska by the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service.
