Intercultural Communication Center(ICC)Waseda University

【Sign Up Period: Oct. 28 – Nov. 18】ICC’s Outreach [email protected] Elementary Schools (Dec. 7, 9, or 10)


I’m interested in teaching about my culture!
I’m thinking of teaching after graduation!
I want to try a volunteer activity!
I want to make new Japanese friends!
I like kids!

If any of these sound like you, then the ICC Outreach program is for you!

The ICC Outreach Program pairs Japanese and international students to work together to create a lesson plan for a class meant to promote cross-cultural understanding. The lessons are then given at local Japanese elementary, junior, and senior high schools to help foster intercultural understanding among school students.

Details of the program will be explained by the ICC at an orientation.
Afterward, you and your partner will meet and work together to prepare
the lesson plan until the day of the school visit.
