#GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We've created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.

Code Club kick off

At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.

This is why we support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs where young people aged 9-13 build and share their ideas, learning along the way.

We currently have more than 10000 clubs in over 100 countries, and our club projects have been translated into 28 languages.

Our projects are easy to follow, step-by-step guides which help young people learn Scratch, HTML & CSS, and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow young people to build their knowledge incrementally, which also means there’s no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.

We also support active clubs with a range of extra resources, including certificates and posters, as well as offering competitions and prize draws for them.

Code Club was founded in 2012, and in 2015 joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity. Code Club is a key educational programme for the Foundation, working to help many more young people learn how to build their ideas with code.

Get involved today and start inspiring the next generation!

Sharing and Caring

 Please join us for our summer Fun-Raiser event to raise fun, funds, and awareness about the work NPOs are doing in Tokyo. While the exhibition will go on from August 6-12th at Aiima on the 8th floor of Hikarie in Shibuya, YouMeWe NPO along with Touchy, HandsOn Tokyo, PhoTOHOKU and Mirai no Mori will host a party and present the work done throughout the year. In many cases, we are overlapping and helping the same groups of people but from a different angle.  *Sharing & Caring, 2008 のアートワークとフォトby Jårg Geismar

Career Testing and Mentoring

rt_top_img_3-1.png

When children turn 15, we offer career assessment testing so they can recognize their aptitude for certain subject matters, as well as potential developing interests. Test results highlight types of courses they might study in university or technical school, as well as a ranked list of jobs associated with their specific results. We analyze the results and provide guidance on how best to move forward. Would they be interested in an internship opportunity? Do they need counseling on university or technical school options? Or maybe they would like tutoring support in a particular area. The test results set a conversation in motion to help guide children on their future possibilities and the correlating steps that follow these options. Providing kids with several years of preparation and training before they start the job search or university equips them with so much more confidence and experience.

Seeking professionals who are willing to be paired with a child (normally 15 years old +) as they look to develop a career path. This includes mapping out a general plan with milestone markers to help them reach their goals. In addition, provide specific training and preparation tools such as interview scenarios, email correspondence etiquette, meeting presentation skills and using software in real-world scenarios (excel spreadsheet, PPT slides, etc.). We require a commitment of a quarterly meeting either at the home or online.  We ask for this commitment to continue until the child reaches the age of 18.

Play, Perform, Learn, Grow: Exploring Creative Community Practices

PPLG-web-banner-3.jpg

As Europe faces the migrant crisis and the losses of the lives of those who tried to reach Europe, increasing poverty, terrorist attacks, Brexit and other challenges to the  European Union, people all over Europe—and beyond—are seeking new ways to respond creatively to these changes and  challenges. “Play, Perform, Learn, Grow: Exploring Creative Community Practice” (PPLG) is being organized to bring together educators and researchers, psychologists and therapists, social workers and out-side-of-school youth workers, medical doctors, artists, social activists and community organizers, - refugees, migrants and locals – and all others who, at this historical crossroads, are seeking new—and often performatory—ways to address the pain, alienation, and violence of our times, re-create their lives, and build new kinds of communities. 

PPLG invites practitioners and researchers from throughout Europe, and the world, who are, in various ways, exploring and/or researching performance, play and the arts as alternative approaches to traditional ways of educating students, practicing therapy, engaging social problems, and activating and creating communities across geographical, language, religious and ideological boundaries. The conference is an opportunity to share practices, ideas, and experiences and to learn from and network with others with similar concerns from very different intellectual, experiential and cultural backgrounds. 

“Play, Perform, Learn, Grow: Exploring Creative Community Practices” has been inspired by and builds with the history of Performing the World, which since 2001 has been a biannual gathering in New York of performance activists and scholars from around the world. PPLG is meant to set the stage for the creation of Performing the World on the Move, a regularly scheduled mobile conference that could respond to local contexts and create opportunities for new leaders and communities to emerge.
