City Of Greeley

Sister City 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. Planning has already begun for Greeley youth to visit Moriya, scheduled for June of 2015.

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.
