San Mateo Sister City Association is seeking ambassadors for a free trip to Toyonaka, Japan

All San Mateo residents between the ages of 16-20 are invited to apply for a free trip to Japan as a goodwill ambassador to the City of Toyonaka, Japan in July 2013.    

For 49 years, the City of San Mateo has had a sister city relationship with the City of Toyonaka, Japan.  The purpose of the sister city relationship is to establish goodwill and cultural understanding between the countries of Japan and the United States. 

Next year, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the sister city relationship, the San Mateo Sister City Association, along with the City of San Mateo will send two students between the ages of 16-20 to Toyonaka, Japan as goodwill ambassadors. 

The students will live with host families, learn about Japanese culture, and represent the City of San Mateo at official events in Toyonaka Japan.  

Applications are available now by clicking HERE.

Applications are due to the City Clerk's office at San Mateo City Hall by Friday, September 14, 2012.
