Jibun-Mirai-Club was established in November of 2005 and has mainly developed the programs related to the children’s education. The motto of the Jibun-Mirai-Club is “Learning for everyone” and has dedicated to develop the program to inspire everyone involved in the program.
The program mainly consists of two parts:
・Hosting “The Young Americans Japan tours”
By cooperating “The Young Americans”, the NPO in the United States, Jibun-Mirai-Club hosts The Young Americans Japan tours. This program is the educational program held in all over Japan to teach expression. The Young Americans casts visit the communities, schools, and the organizations to hold the singing and dancing workshop with the participants to create the 1hour entertainment show.
・”Providing the working-experience to children”
By cooperating with various enterprises, Jibun-Mirai-Club has conducted the “Working-Expedition program” and “The power of the work program”. “Working-Expedition program” is the program for the new employees and interns to tell the elementary school children the meaning and the pleasure to work. “The power of the work program” is aimed for the mid-level-employees to tell their own working-experience to the junior and high school students.
Along with these programs, Jibun-Mirai-Club has annually hosted “TOMODACHI female high school students, career mentoring program in Fukushima” by being backed up by “The Public Interest Incorporated Foundation Japan-America Council, TOMODACHI Initiative” since 2014.
The program that we will be supporting: “The Young Americans・International Music Outreach Program”
The Young Americans is the non-profit organization in the United States, which provides the educational programs through music all over the world. Jibun-Mirai-Club hosts “the Music Outreach” in Japan and has conducted the Young Americans・Japan Tour since 2006. The Young Americans casts mainly visit schools and communities and create the singing and dancing entertainment show, only in 2 or 3 days, with the elementary, and junior and high school students.
Jibun-Mirai-Club provides the opportunities for the hundreds of children to learn together, respect each other’s personalities, and develop their own possibilities through the common language, music. The Young Americans casts not only create 1 hour entertainment show with the participants through the workshop but also learn by themselves through this activity.
