A school of 38 students from Japan will come to the Big Island and Oahu, and will collaborate with 7 local high school students at 7 Islanders (local college student leaders). The program's theme is on SUSTAINABILITY.
LbE Hawaii is seeking (7) local high school students (age 14~18) to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime program. The program is completely free and covered by LbE Hawaii. These student participants will be paired up with a group consisting of around 7~8 participants consisting of around 5~6 Japanese students and 1 Islander.
