Japan in DC, a two-year-old summer enrichment program, gives interested high school students the opportunity to explore and document the presence of Japan in the nation’s capital through its Japan-related individuals, institutions and landmarks.

The four-week, project-based program — offered free of charge and touted as fun and experiential — will operate 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday-Friday from July 1- 26, tentatively at the Columbia Heights Education Campus in Northwest.

Up to 20 DCPS and DC Public Charter School participants in grades 9-11 are eligible to apply.

Students who successfully complete the program will be given priority for selection for “Japanese Plus,” a popular “Globalize DC” after-school Japanese language, culture and career exposure program.

The deadline to apply is Monday, April 15. Applications will be considered after that date only if seats remain unfilled.
