The North Shore Lions Youth Exchange Program has been in operation since 1970; Our program strives to provide an increased cultural understanding and friendship between the sister cities of North Vancouver, Canada and Chiba, Japan. We have helped more than 450 students to experience a different culture by actually living as part of the culture.
