From August 8th to 12th, 2016, 35 students of Mishima-Kita High participated in the Empowerment Program with the students from Nirayama High and Numazu-Higashi High.  Under the guidance and facilitation of 12 foreign students from Harvard University, University of California and so on, they had discussions on current topics like nuclear energy, the right to vote, the water issues.  Since English was the only language they could use throughout the program, they could highly develop their listening and speaking skills.  At the same time, they could achieve a positive attitude toward their owe lives in these five days.
