TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Framework

TOMODACHI Alumni
Regional Framework

The TOMODACHI Alumni Regional Framework is a platform to connect the over 7,800 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 six regions represented by eight (8) teams: Tohoku-Hokkaido Region (two teams), Kanto Region (two teams), Chubu-Hokuriku Region, Kansai-Chugoku-Shikoku Region, Kyushu Region, and Okinawa Region. Each team consists of one Regional Leader (student alumni) partnered with a Regional Mentor (young professional alumni with a minimum of 5-7 years of work experience). 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.
