Youth for 3.11 and the Challenge of Dispatching Young Urban Volunteers to North-eastern Japan
Regardless of the fact that there has been a severe shortage of volunteers following the Great East Japan Earthquake, we have witnessed a situation where many interested students have been unable to partake in volunteering. Youth for 3.11 believes that students – the supporters of tomorrow’s Japan – have an important role to play in the solution of social problems. This is why it is our aim to realise, through the provision of accessible volunteering opportunities, both a swift recovery as well as a society where students can take part in the solving of social problems.
