【Sign Up Period: Jul 5 – Aug 23】 ICC’s Outreach Fieldtrip: Waseda Setsuryo Junior & High School (Osaka) (Sep 13 & 14)


Interested in teaching about your culture?
Thinking of teaching after graduation?
Want to try a volunteer activity?
Want to make new Japanese friends?
Do you like kids?

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

And that’s not all! For this Outreach we’ll be taking a Field Trip to Waseda Setsuryo Junior & Senior High School in OSAKA!
The program finishes in Osaka and since its summer break you are free to go sightseeing in Kyoto or Osaka!

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 given at local Japanese elementary, junior, and senior high schools.
ICC staff will explain in detail about how to create lesson plans at the orientation, and you will be preparing for it together with your partner.

We are looking forward to receiving your application!

*Participation is required at one of the orientations and the lesson planning meeting.
However, since this program takes place during the summer break, please discuss with the ICC staff when you can come in for the meeting at the ICC Lounge.

* In addition to the above meeting, it is necessary to meet several times with your partner in order to plan, prepare, and practice the lesson.
* Although this is a volunteer program, you will be a teacher of an actual class, and so dropping out of the program or being late is not acceptable. Participants are expected to be present and on time for all meetings to ensure the program runs smoothly.


The school will provide a one-way Shinkansen ticket to Osaka from Tokyo Station, 1 night’s accommodation at student dorm and dinner on Sep 13, and breakfast and lunch on Sep 14.

Transportation costs and arrangements back to Tokyo are entirely the responsibility of the participant. Round trip transportation to Tokyo station from your home and any other miscellaneous expenses are also the responsibility of the participant.
