1. Cultural Education Outreach (CEO) Program
Teachers whose students are interested in Japan have a very useful resource at their disposal - The Cultural Education Outreach (CEO) Program. The CEO program visit for about one hour, which a member of the Japan Information Center shares information about Japan and its culture with students. We show videos, discuss geography, nature, school and children of similar age in Japan. We also engage in activities with the students like origami, traditional story-telling (kamishibai), teach them about language, writing, and of course, give them the chance to ask questions.
If you would like to set up a visit, please email or call Ms. Chiaki Torisu at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 418-4451. We ask you to give us a few possible dates and at least a few weeks advance notice. We look forward to meeting students with an interest in Japan and its culture.
