CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas  — Traveling to far-away places is an experience many dream about. For students in Corpus Christi, however, it is a dream that is well within reach, thanks to the Sister City Student Exchange Program.

High School Sophomores and Juniors are invited to apply for this program. Among the requirements to be accepted is a demonstrated outstanding academic and leadership performance; a good understanding of citizenship and what it means to be an ambassador for Corpus Christi; and a keen interest in learning about the world outside of the United States.

Those who are chosen will have the opportunity to immerse themselves this summer in one of Corpus Christi’s sister cities of Agen, France or Yokosuka, Japan. They will live with a host student and family. At the end of their stay, they will return with their host student to spend two weeks in Corpus Christi.

For an application packet, simply go to Facebook and search CorpusChristiSisterCitiesCommittee.

You may also contact Teresa Rodriguez at trodriguez@visitcorpuschristi.org or by calling (361) 826-0655.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, March 27.
