Interested in teaching about your culture?

Want to try a volunteer activity?
Want to make new Japanese friends?
Do you like kids?

If any of these sound like you, then the ICC Outreach program is for you!

And that's not all! For this Outreach we'll be taking a Field Trip
to Waseda Setsuryo Junior & Senior High School in OSAKA!
The program finishes in Osaka and since its summer break
you are free to sightsee in Kyoto or Osaka!

The ICC Outreach Program pairs Japanese and international students
to work together to create a lesson plan for a class meant to promote
cross-cultural understanding. The lessons are given at local Japanese
elementary, junior, and senior high schools. ICC staff will explain
in detail about how to create lesson plans at the orientation,
and you will be preparing for it together with your partner.

We are looking forward to receiving your application!

* In addition to the above meetings, it is necessary to meet several times
with your partner in order to plan, prepare, and practice the lesson.
