Two Workshops. Double the Fun.

Kizuna is excited to offer two workshops, each focusing on a different age and cultural topic. Our workshops are sure to be educational, interactive, and of course, fun for all of our participants!

Cultural Values & leadership

Ages: 15-22

The leadership skills & practices of an individual are highly influenced by the values they hold. This workshop explores how Japanese American cultural values influence and enhance our ability to be a leader.
