FY2021 U.S. Embassy Tokyo: Youth Outreach and Exchange
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 engage with Japanese youth and to deepen the understanding of U.S.-Japan relations, roles of multi-lateral corporations, and U.S. values among Japanese youth
In this ever-changing world, young people are bombarded with influencers from all sides. While having options is good, also they need guidance and mentorship from today’s exemplary leaders, influencers, and change-makers. Knowing that future leaders are today’s youth, we must provide opportunities for youth to learn about leadership, building fruitful relationships, and understanding the world around them.
The Embassy welcomes proposals that address these complex issues. The proposal should detail the specific social issue(s) being addressed, explain the approaches that are being implemented to solve these issues and highlight its impact, effectiveness, and future sustainability. The proposal must contain an element that focuses on the collaborative efforts between the U.S. and Japan.
The Embassy is particularly interested in supporting the following priority areas:
- Nurturing next-generation leaders of Japan and the United States
- Discussing roles of multi-lateral corporations
- Deepening the understanding of U.S. cultures and values among Japanese youth
