Star-Bulletin staff

The Pacific and Asian Affairs Council is announcing the formation of a PAAC Travel Program for Hawaii public high school students.

Its first two-week study tour will be to the People's Republic of China this June.

The PAAC Travel Program is funded by a $200,000 grant from the Freeman Foundation.

The program will take a delegation of 15-20 students to a different Asian or Pacific country each summer, drawn from participants within PAAC clubs and after-school classes.

The educational tours will address such themes as international relations, international commerce, global politics and foreign governments.

PAAC is a private, nonprofit organization seeking to promote awareness of international affairs and U.S. foreign policy, with an emphasis on Asia and the Pacific.
