Every summer, the Edmonds Sister City Commission coordinates a two-week exchange of middle and high school students between Edmonds and its sister city, Hekinan, Japan. These host families provide a room, some meals, and transportation for their student.

Hosting a student provides a glimpse into another culture and the opportunity to share our American way of life. The students stay here in Edmonds for two weeks, from Aug. 6-19, and the commission plans most of the daytime and some evening activities for them.

If you, or someone you know, would be willing to host a student, email sister.city@edmondswa.gov or call 425-771-0247 for more information.
