What is a youth program?

Introducing the program overview and members' activity records

The people who gather here are high school students (youth volunteers) who are interested in international exchange and foreign residents who want to support high school students.
Although we are of different nationalities and age groups, our aspirations are the same. However, there are not many places where they can work in the same position…I want to connect them.
With this in mind, the " MIFA Youth Program " was launched in September 2023.

Their wish is for high school students of the same generation to experience cross-cultural exchange more closely .
"What can I do to help people feel closer to people from countries they don't meet on a daily basis, and to foreign cultures that they seem to know but don't know much about?" "I want to provide learning and experiences that are different from those at school!"
After thinking about this, we decided to plan an experiential cross-cultural exchange event together.
The actual performance will be in December.
Currently, we all meet at MIFA once a month to come up with the content for the event.

Please look forward to seeing what kind of event will be completed.
