Mission of BSCO
As a Sister City Organization, our goal is “to promote mutual understanding through an exchange of people, information, and ideas”, which is just a fancy way to say we want to “grow together by learning about each other”.
We accomplish this goal through a variety of cultural exchange events with our own sister city: Izumi City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
