More than 500 lucky US high school students will travel to Japan for a two-month exchange programme, sponsored by Youth for Understanding – and for the fourth consecutive year, Epson America is a corporate sponsor of the programme, making five students its personal responsibility. This exchange programme is one of the best possible ways for students to compare the culture of Japan to that of the United States, says Epson America general manager Gene Kunde, rather obviously. Each student on the programme will stay with a host family that has been screened and selected by the Youth for Understanding organisation, and will participate in many of their host families’ activities. Based in Washington, Youth for Understanding was established to promote peace through increased understanding and co-operation among high school students. While the programme annually places approximately 2,000 students abroad in more than 30 countries, many more students come from other countries to the United States under the programme.
