2019 Program Updates

Sakaide, Japan

The 2019 Sakaide-Sausalito program’s “Submittal Window” for applications for this summer’s Student Delegation to Sakaide has now closed. We’re going through our internal due diligence, but it looks like we have a great group of delegates once again! Delegates will travel to Sakaide in late July as part of a city-to-city delegation, representing Sausalito and continuing our mission of forging long-lasting relationships between families here in Marin and in Sakaide – our 31st year in doing so!

Viña del Mar, Chile

In September 2019, eight women business entrepreneurs from our sister city Viña del Mar, Chile, will study and participate in the Sausalito Arts Festival. For three days, they will learn community engagement, festival operations, and volunteerism. Following the Arts Festival, they will participate in local business and leadership workshops, touring several Sausalito businesses to learn retail and marketing operations and interacting with the Sausalito community to experience Sausalito culture and engage in business mentoring opportunities. We look forward to welcoming them to our city!
