Through NYO high school students are given the opportunity to become more involved in the community and gain valuable hands-on leadership skills. NYO members will have the opportunity to lead the organization, gain valuable skills in event planning as well as community service experience.

In previous years, NYO has hosted several cultural workshops, sporting events, and provided community service hours. For example, NYO has previously hosted events such as: taiko workshops, cooking classes, sushi making workshop, a basketball tournament, and a tour of Little Tokyo including the Japanese American National Museum.

The ESGVJCC believes in the importance of developing young leaders in the community and NYO exemplifies the potential impact youth can have on the entire organization.

Student Exchange Program

 

232323232-fp537-7-nu328-359-66-wsnrcg34--9725532-nu0mrjTRAVEL TO JAPAN: August 2-10

The Student Exchange Program was created to provide a cultural exchange for students in both Japan and the United States. It is different from a normal visit to Japan because students stay with a host family and are fully emerged into the culture. While in Japan, students will visit several historic sites, have cultural classes, visit a junior high school, and much more.

The cost for the 2016 Student Exchange Program is $2,000 which includes airfare, transportation, housing, food, and activities.

For questions, contact the ESGVJCC office (626) 960-2566.

Next Information Meeting: 1:00pm on Saturday, February 20th at the ESGVJCC: Dining Room
