Our MIssion

Kizuna’s mission is to build a future for our community through the education, empowerment, and engagement of the next generation.

Culture. Heritage.

We introduce and explore important cultural values critical to the success of the next generation. By developing an understanding and appreciation of our Japanese American heritage, we build a commitment to carrying these values into the future.

Leadership. Service.

Through a strong understanding of identity and community, our participants become strong individuals, and understand the importance of giving their time, talents, and treasures to our community's organizations.

Networks. Mentorship.

Our participants gain hands-on experience as interns, board fellows, instructors, and counselors. The relationships created through our programs build a united cohort of the next generation.

Community. Future.

Ultimately, we seek to build a bright future for our community. Each year, we build tomorrow's leaders, volunteers, donors, and community advocates.
