TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Framework

The TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Framework is a platform to connect the over 7,000 TOMODACHI alumni across regions combined with a leadership development program that identifies and trains the rising stars committed to improving their regional communities.

Japan is divided into seven regions represented by ten (10) teams: Tohoku-Hokkaido Region (Iwate Team, Miyagi Team, Fukushima Team), Kanto Region (Team A and Team B), Chubu-Hokuriku Region, Kansai Region, Chugoku-Shikoku Region, Kyushu Region, and Okinawa Region. Each team consists of two Regional Leaders (college and/or high school students) supported by a Regional Mentor (young professional with a minimum of 5-7 years of work experience) who are all TOMODACHI Alumni. Together, these Leaders and Mentors will represent their regions and take part in the TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Impact for Social Empowerment (RISE) Leadership Program.

The TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Framework is supported by the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and the U.S. Consulates throughout Japan through the engagement of officers in the selection process and the providing of event space for these alumni events to occur.

The TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Framework is part of the TOMODACHI Alumni Leadership Program is made possible with generous support of Prudential.

The TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Impact for Social Empowerment (RISE) Leadership Program will change the dynamics of alumni engagement by furthering opportunities for alumni to connect, empower and inspire one another in their respective regions.

This year-long leadership training program focuses on social innovation on a local level. Regional Leaders of each region will gain valuable skills in order to identify and tackle social issues, create events, and bolster their regional alumni community. This will be building upon their initial TOMODACHI experiences, giving them the opportunity to continue their leadership journey through hands-on training and mentorship.
