Youth Leadership Rebuilding the Future

Background Since the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011, the unemployment rate in the Tohoku region has skyrocketed. The main industries of the region - fishing and agriculture have been devastated. The youth of Tohoku needs to re-imagine their futures from scratch. The Idea – Investing in the Future Providing training in entrepreneurism, innovation and life skills to youth from Tohoku.

The youth returns to their communities with practical vocational and leadership skills. Using these new skills as a mobilizing force within fragile and distressed communities.

Our Vision IsraAID is always searching for additional partners who will be able to accommodate Tohoku communities' need for professional education and training. We believe that major businesses in Japan can use IsraAID's local knowledge and deep relationships with the communities in order to convey their specific know-how while enhancing their reach and contributing to the rebuilding efforts. A successful entrepreneurship, leadership and vocational training requires experts in these fields. We invite companies to provide added value to our program by sharing their knowledge, expertise, and core competencies and helping us in creating “shared value” for their business and the people of Japan. By cooperating with IsraAID’s youth leadership programs, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to the communities they operate in, and participate in creating a future vision, based on their organization's values.
