2021 Uchinaa Junior Study Program

Looking for Hawaii Participants and Youth Leader!

2021 Uchina Junior Study Program

The Okinawa Prefecture International Exchange Division will be selecting ONE candidate from Hawaii to participate in the 2021 Uchinaa Junior Study Program. ONE Overseas Youth Leader will be selected from all overseas applicants.

Youth of Okinawan descent from around the world will learn about Okinawan history, culture, and nature while experiencing daily life with local Okinawan youths of the same age group. They will build strong bonds, deepen their understanding of their Okinawan roots, the local Okinawan students will broaden their international outlooks, and grow the generation that will shoulder the Uchinaa Network.
