The Sister City Exchange Program with Ushiku, Japan, began in 1985, providing opportunities for Whitehorse student ambassadors and adult chaperones to visit Ushiku, Japan. In turn families in Whitehorse host Japanese students every other year as the program alternates. Students and chaperones must cover airfare and spending money while meals and accommodation are covered by host families.
