Students invited to apply for Sister City Exchange Program


Traveling to far-away places is an experience many dream about. But for some students in Corpus Christi, it is a dream that is well within reach.

Once again, high school sophomores and juniors are invited to apply for the 2019 Summer Sister City Exchange Program.

Among the requirements to be accepted in this program is a demonstrated outstanding academic and leadership performance; a good understanding of citizenship and what it means to be an ambassador for Corpus Christi; and a keen interest in learning about the world outside of the United States.

Those who are chosen will spend two or three weeks in one of Corpus Christi’s sister cities (Agen, France; Yokosuka, Japan; Keelung, Taiwan) over the summer with a host student and family. At the end of their stay, they will return with their host student to spend another two or three educational and fun-filled weeks in Corpus Christi.

For an application packet, simply go to and search for the Sister City Program. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 29.

To learn more about the program, contact Teresa Rodriguez through email at or by calling (361) 826-0655.
