This article presents results of a national evaluation of the 4-H Japanese exchange program. The evaluation looked at the impact of participation in the program on personal and life skill development in youth who travel to Japan or serve as a host to an international youth visiting the United States. The results indicate that participation in the program has significant impact on personal and life skill development in youth, whether they travel to Japan or serve as host. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed few significant differences in development between youth who travel to Japan and youth who serve as host.
