Report
BACKGROUND
The Santa Clara Sister Cities Association (SCSCA) offers student-exchange program scholarships for Santa Clara students to visit Santa Clara's sister cities of Izumo, Japan; Coimbra, Portugal; or Limerick, Ireland.

The SCSCA student-exchange program offers the students an opportunity to work with the Santa Clara community, get involved in international exchange efforts, and visit and meet people in our sister cities.

DISCUSSION

During the presentation, the SCSCA Youth Commissioners will report on their recent exchange visit to Limerick, Ireland, share their experiences from the visit, and will encourage members of our community to become involved with SCSCA.
