Sister City Youth Exchange Program Now Accepting Applications For 2010

September 28th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

The Temple City Sister City program is now accepting applications for participation in the Youth Exchange Program for the summer of 2010.  This year’s program will involve travel to Hawkesbury Shire, New South Wales, Australia. Participants will leave for Australia in July and return in August.

The opportunity is available only to students who reside in Temple City or attend Temple City High School.  Students must be sophomores during the 2009-2010 school year to apply for and participate in this exchange program.

Participating students will be responsible for their passport and personal expenses.  Due to an increase in airfare, there is a possibility that students may also need to pay for a small portion of their airfare ($100-$200). It is recommended students take a minimum of $500 for personal expenses during the trip. Students selected to travel to Australia are required to join the Temple City Sister City Association (family membership: $15; individual membership: $10).

Parents and students are required to attend a mandatory information meeting on September 30, 2009, at 7:00 p.m., in the Community Room at the Temple City City Hall complex, 9701 Las Tunas Drive, Temple City. Students are also required to attend two additional workshops which will be held on November 2nd, and November 9th, at 7:00 p.m., in the Community Room at City Hall.

Applicant interviews will be conducted on Saturday, November 21, 2009. Applications are available at City Hall and the TCHS Activities Office.

Applications must be returned to City Hall (9701 Las Tunas Drive) on or before Thursday, October 22, 2009. For answers to any questions about the program, please phone Nancy Terry at 626-285-7995.
