Become a Host Family for the 28th Japan-America Grassroots Summit in Washington State
September 20-23, 2018
What is the Grassroots Summit?
The Japan America Grassroots Summit is an annual large-scale exchange of Japanese and American people, held alternatively in Japan and America. The Summit aims to strengthen the peaceful relationship between our two countries by fostering friendship at the grassroots level.
See the event brochure for more information.
After opening the Summit in Seattle, participants leave for their home stay town and stay with their host family for four days and three nights. During the home stay days, the local town leaders and host families work together to share the best that their community has to offer. Check out the Local Session and Host Family Handbook v.3 for more detailed information on local sessions and tips for hosting.
Local Sessions need host families to help make the Summit a success!
