Tohoku Youth Venture

by ASHOKA JAPAN

Summary

Tohoku Youth Venture (TYV) is an initiative to help young Japanese implement their ideas to rejuvenate the area struck by earthquake, tsunami and nuclear plant explosion on March 11, 2011. We reached 1800 youths between 12 and 20 years old in 2012. Among them 10 teams passed the panel and recognized as Youth Venturers. They received seed money and are given technical support over the course of one year. We aim at reaching 1800 more youths and helping 10~20 teams launch their ideas in 2013.

Challenge

After almost two years since the triple disaster the recovery process has not taken a leap. On the other hand, Japanese youths remain passive, afraid of failing and taking risks.

Solution

We take this disaster as an opportunity to motivate young people to contribute to the future of their country.

Long-Term Impact

We aim at nurturing 150 young changemakers engaged in the recovery of the area by 2016. We believe the network will form a platform of young leaders of Japan.
