28th Annual Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC)

January 4, 2016 at 8:00 am - February 5, 2016 at 5:00 pm

As Georgia’s liaison office, the JASG has been given the unique opportunity to participate in the 28th Annual Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention and share the culture of Japan with four students (two boys and two girls) from the State of Georgia through this fully funded exchange program.

What  is the 28th Annual Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention?

The APCC has been held every year since 1989 with the objectives of: 1) generating appreciation for the culture of other nations and regions; 2) promoting mutual understanding and friendship; and 3) nurturing international awareness in the region through the young people.  The convention will take place from Sunday, July 10, 2016 to Sunday, July 24, 2016 in Fukuoka, Japan. The APCC’s vision is for “each and every one of us to be global citizens of an ‘OMOIYARI’ (compassionate) spirit, creating a more peaceful world abounds with the smiles of children. The theme of the convention is “We are the BRIDGE: We connect dreams around the world.”  Georgia’s four students will join more than 300 other “Junior Ambassadors” (JAs) from around the world for two weeks of culture and language exchange, home stays, sightseeing, and sporting events.  Georgia will also send a chaperone to facilitate between the students and the convention.  This person will be able to supervise and provide assistance for the Junior Ambassadors during the entire schedule.

The deadline for submission is February 5, 2016.  Any applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

For more specific information about the APCC and for detailed information from last year’s convention, please refer to the official convention web site at www.apcc.gr.jp/e/index.html or the JASG website at www.jasgeorgia.org for application and other document support.
