Tohoku Youth Project 2018
Call for hosts, sponsors and volunteers
In spring break 2013, CCCJ members and friends together with NPO, Ganbatte 365, brought down 11 high school students from Takata SHS in Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture for a week of home stay and work experience in the big city. CCCJ Members offered their homes and their companies to help make the project a success and an unforgettable experience for the kids. Everyone who participated came away feeling great about their involvement. Here is a short video documenting the project:
