The U.S. Embassy Tokyo’s Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for proposals to manage and administer projects designed to foster people-to-people exchanges between American and Japanese youth and/or to deepen the understanding of U.S. culture and values among Japanese youth.
In this ever-changing world, young people are bombarded with influencers from all sides. While having options is good, also need guidance and mentorship from today’s exemplary leaders, influencers, and change makers. Knowing that future leaders are today’s youth, they must provide the opportunities for youth to learn about leadership, building fruitful relationships, and understanding the world around them. Additionally, youth outreach programs are an important tool for advancing U.S. foreign policy goals through interaction with next generation leaders and students and/or their teachers/mentors.
