The Haddonfield Japanese Exchange (HJE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that promotes an annual exchange program between students from Haddonfield and Japan.  In alternating summers, about 12-20 students (and chaperones) from Japan and the U.S. visit one another and stay with host families.

About Us

The HJE was started in 2006 by retired Philadelphia teacher Bill Brown. This international exchange has been a labor of love for Mr. Brown, who has led the trips to Japan and the United States for over a decade. Mr. Brown is a valuable member of our Board! We are currently partnered with Sendai International School in the Miyagi Prefecture. We had a wonderful trip in July 2023 and look forward to welcoming our exchange partners to Haddonfield in 2024!
