Japan Volunteers-in-Parks Association Hosts

Type: Local individuals or families
Dates: late August to early September
Status: Now seeking volunteer hosts near Ashford or Eatonville

Quick summary: Every year since 1994, the Japan Volunteers-in-Parks Association (J-VIPA) has brought a team of students to Mount Rainier from Waseda University in Japan to conduct volunteer work through the park's maintenance program. To reduce costs and facilitate visas, the students stay with host families in the community.
For more information, or to participate in this great international exchange opportunity by hosting a student or assisting with the group, contact J-VIPA Coordinator Mika Moore at 360-569-2211 ext. 2379
