Note: Although this is a volunteer program, participants will be teaching

    program or being late is not acceptable. Participants are
    expected to be present and on time for all meetings in order
    to ensure the program runs smoothly.

★Students are highly encouraged to sign up for either the Wasedajitsugyo (Dec. 3)
 or the Kiyose Daiyon Elementary School (Dec. 6) or the Nishinakano Elementary
 School (Dec. 14) or the Nakano Daigo Junior High School (Dec.16) visits.
 Student pairs who can join on multiple days can use a similar lesson plan for
 each school, so you will be able to share your culture and the lesson you've
 created with more Japanese schoolchildren.
 (these students will not need to attend all of the preparation meetings)
 ※For the Wasedajitsugyo Elementary School Outreach pairs may change.
