The mission of the Junior Ambassadors Program is to foster the development of friendship, understanding, and education through international cultural exchange. For over 25 years, the City of Lubbock has maintained a valuable relationship with its sister city, Musashino City, Japan. The City is proud to partner with the Lubbock community to sponsor the program, which operates on an alternating schedule. Every other year sixteen Lubbock students travel to Japan. In the intervening years, a delegation of students, staff, and elected officials from Musashino City travels to Lubbock.
