Ashinaga is looking for interns (volunteers) who can teach multicultural communication and leadership skills to bereaved students at Kokoro Juku, where both Japanese and international students reside. Through life experiences at Kokoro Juku, interns can acquire the problem-solving skills needed to navigate multi-cultural environments. Not only do we expect interns to teach communication to the students, but also educate students to be positive, to speak up, and to be confident, even around people they are unfamiliar with. In return, interns will also have an opportunity to learn about Japan (Japanese culture, politics, economy, etc.) through discussions with the students, a study tour in Kyoto and volunteer activity in the tsunami-affected region in Tohoku.
