MD333 Information for YCE Spring & Summer Youth Exchange Program
November 19, 2020
Dear Lion friends,
Cancellation of 2021 Spring & Summer Youth Exchange Program in Japan
Most of the world are exposed to the threat of COVID-19 virus. Although we have watched the situation calmly hoping it is getting better. However, we still cannot find even its good sign and we have lost the optimism that the terrible situation will finish before summer.
Japan Lions held an urgent meeting of all the MD YCECs on 26 October, and we discussed how to deal with this matter. As a result, we must inform all of you with great sadness that we decided to cancel all 2021 Spring & Summer Youth Exchange Program.
This was a very hard decision. However, the priority is the safety of the youth, the host families, and the local people.
We do hope the world will get back safety, and we will reopen the program in Winter 2021.
Thank you very much for your understanding.
L Isamu Obuki
