**EDIT: Thanks to your support and the hard work of our students and generous donations offline thus far - we are halfway to reaching our goal! If we hit our new GoFundMe Goal of $15000, this trip will become a reality for these students!!**

We are approximately 20 CRLS students, who come from diverse backgrounds, and will go on a 10-day cultural exchange trip to Japan in June, 2019. We will serve as student ambassadors to Cambridge’s sister city of Tsukuba and cultural liaisons for peer-to-peer relationships with public school students in Akita prefecture. 

We need your support to make our trip to Japan inclusive and open to all students, we have set an ambitious fundraising goal. Please consider making a donation to our trip so that we can make this extraordinary opportunity a reality for us!

Please consider supporting us!

$30: Will sponsor a student's meals for one day

Messages from us:

(CRLS, Class of '21):"There are so many reasons why I want to go to Japan, to name one would be unfair. I want to go to try something I know next to nothing about. I want to challenge myself by immersing myself in a culture that I am interested in."

(CRLS, Class of '20)
"I'm looking forward to going to Japan because I believe getting to experience different cultures first hand is important, and I thought this would be a good start. If we were able to get enough funding for our trip, I along with the 19 other students going will lean a lot from this trip."

 (CRLS, Class of '21)
"I want to go to Japan in order to immerse myself into a culture that is new to me and diversify my knowledge of different cultures. This is an amazing experience that I hope you will support."
