Moriya, Japan Student Program

Did you know the City of Greeley and Moriya, Japan, have been celebrating and fostering a Sister City relationship for more than 20 years? Every odd year summer the City of Greeley sponsors approximately ten high school students to visit Moriya, Japan, as part of a student exchange. During even years, Greeley students host Moriya students.

The Sister City Student Exchange Program is a wonderful opportunity for students from both cities to explore each other's country and learn more about their cultures, traditions, and way of life.

2017 student trip to Japan


In June 2017, nine students in grades 9 through 12 during the 2016-2017 school year traveled with adult representatives from the City of Greeley to Japan. Each student from the City of Greeley received a stipend to help offset the cost of their travel expenses. The remainder of the trip cost came from the students and their families; however, the students sought sponsors to help offset the cost of their trip.

Host a student in 2018!
