Gilbert Sister Cities Student Exchange
Gilbert Sister Cities connects communities with relationships between the Town of Gilbert and its Sister Cities Newtownabby, Northern Ireland and Leshan, China. Each summer, a student exchange program gives high school students the opportunity to experience these cultures abroad.
The program selects four local students to spend two weeks paired with students from Ireland and China in the United States, and then those students spend two weeks in their partners’ countries. Through the exchange, students develop an understanding of different countries and cultures, and make life-long friends.
The program is open to Juniors in Gilbert or Higley schools. Download an application here.
