Japan York-Benimaru Foundation and 4-H Manitoba Homestay Program

In July 2019, ten 4-H Manitoba members and two chaperones traveled to Japan for two weeks.  This travel opportunity is open only to 4-H families who have hosted a Japanese student through our program.  If you would like a chance to travel in the future, consider hosting a Japanese student during our next summer program (dates to be confirmed).
