Kizuna’s Service Learing Program
Kizuna’s Service Learning Program by Kizuna Little Tokyo
Our grant to Kizuna’s Service Learning Program will help provide seniors in the Japanese American community with the opportunity to learn digital skills while developing technological confidence. Seniors will also build relationships with high school youth throughout the 10-week program, which will be hosted in both Pasadena and Orange Counties.
Kizuna was founded in 2011 by a group of young Japanese American community leaders in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo, answering the question, “Where is the next generation?” After starting with one high school program, they have expanded to provide programs for elementary school, middle school, and college students, as well as young adults up to age 40, serving over 1,500 individuals since 2011.
