Dear YCE Chairpersons

 

Cancellation of 2020 Summer Youth Exchange Program in Japan

Most of the world are exposed to the threat of COVID-19 virus. Although we have watched the situation calmly hoping it is getting better. But, we still cannot find even its good sign and we have lost the optimism that the terrible situation will finish before summer.

Japan Lions held an urgent meeting of all the MD YCECs on 26 March and we discussed how to deal with this matter. As a result, we must inform all of you with great sadness that we decided to cancel all 2020 Summer Youth Exchange Program.

This was a very hard decision. YCE officers on both sides have made efforts to lead this program to success for these months. And the youth were looking forward to participating in it with expectations. However, the priority at this moment is the safety of the youth, the host families and the local people.

Regarding the youth whom we have already accepted, age restriction will be waived in our program 2021 if they still want to visit Japan. It will be much appreciated if you make a same kind of special treatment for Japanese youth to your country.

We do hope the world will get back safety and we will reopen the program in summer 2021.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Best regards.
