“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
Maryland 4-H has the unique opportunity to offer new and exciting programs to youth and families. Through this intercultural program, we are growing leaders, developing global perspectives, and engaging communities.
In offering outbound opportunities such as a one-month homestay in Japan and a two-week service-learning program in Tanzania (located in East Africa), Maryland 4-H elevates how leaders are developed. The inbound opportunities for families to host Japan's delegates for a one-month homestay allow you to experience a new country without leaving this one.
Vaccines are strongly recommended, but not required for host families. At this point, Japanese delegates are strongly recommended to be vaccinated before travel, but it is not required. Japanese delegates are required to receive a negative PCR test within 72 hours of arriving in the US and again before departing the US. Please reach out to the State Coordinator for further details.
