Sister City Association

Sister Cities International is a citizen diplomacy network that promotes global peace, prosperity and humanitarianism through cultural exchange.

Temple City currently has Sister City relations with Magdalena de Kino, Mexico (1964) and Hawkesbury City, Australia (1984). The local Sister City Association coordinates an active exchange program with Hawkesbury City, including an annual student exchange program, as well as biennial adult ambassador trips. 

Student Ambassador Program
Every summer, six Temple City students are sent to Hawkesbury City, Australia, for a four-week program including homestay with a host family, attendance at a secondary school, community activities, as well as visits to attractions like museums and theaters. In the fall, six Hawkesbury City students visit Temple City to participate in similar activities.

Adult Ambassador Trips
