“From the inundated streets of Tokyo, to the loud stillness of Minamisanriku, every step we took in the land of the rising sun seemed to make an impact on me,” wrote Luke Nogueira, one of DC’s students in the Tomodachi US-Japan Youth Exchange Program. Students Jatalia Wilson and Malaika Coleman also joined the Education Town Hall on April 16 to discuss their experiences and the Tomodachi program. Also joining the program, Sally Schwartz of Globalize DC, who helps bring such experiences to DC schools.

Sally Schwartz is founder and executive director of Globalize DC, a non-profit mobilizing the unique resources of the nation’s capital to help prepare a new generation of DC youth for life and careers in our culturally diverse, globally interconnected 21st century world.
