About KAC
Kizuna Across Cultures (KAC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to its mission to inspire youth in Japan and the United States to look beyond their communities, embrace diversity, and become active global citizens by fostering international friendship through exchange of culture and collaborative learning of foreign language via an educational exchange website. 

What is Global Classmates?

KAC facilitates the international exchange program Global Classmates for high schools in Japan and the U.S. Through a dynamic online interaction using messages, photos, and videos, students get to know their "classmates" in another country and practice their foreign language skills, as well as build lasting friendships. 

Since 2012, over 2,000 U.S. and Japanese students have participated in Global Classmates.
