Local Japanese-Americans interested in learning more about their ancestral culture and burnishing their leadership skills can apply to join a delegation to the country next March.
The Japanese American Leadership Delegation, a program managed by the U.S.-Japan Council in its 18th year, is seeking applicants through the Atlanta consulate for its 2018 program.
Those applying from Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina should do so before Sept. 22 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to 404-240-4311 or mail to the Consulate General of Japan in Atlanta at the following address:
