STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM

This student exchange program offers a special opportunity for students, ages 17 to 30, to participate in summer exchanges with our international sister cities. To qualify, students must be attending high schools or colleges in the areas served by the Pasadena Unified School District or they must be residents of that area. Students selected for the exchange program will be expected to participate in Pasadena Sister City activities and help to provide housing for visiting students the following summer.

Each of our sister cities provides accommodations with host families and visits to local attractions.
The student pays for transportation (air fare) and miscellaneous personal expenses.
The term of exchange varies from four to six weeks; students may travel more after the exchange.
