US Educators

JCCI’s 2015 U.S. Educators Program

This summer our 26th delegation of American teachers, administrators, and guests visited Japan for a special two week study tour. While there they participated in a wide range of activities in order to help them better serve their students and Tri-State area Japanese communities. After arriving in Japan on June 30th, Educators visited an elementary, middle, and high school, and the offices of the Japan Overseas Educational Services. The tour took them from Tokyo to Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Nara, returning to New York in mid-July. The participants also had the important opportunity to meet and hear from a Hiroshima atomic bomb survivor. Please click here to see some photos from the trip.

Best wishes to this year’s Educators!
