Leadership Through Volunteerism
One of the goals of the Nihonmachi Street Fair is to encourage
our youth to participate in the event by volunteering their
time. By working alongside Street Fair
Committee, Board and other volunteers they learn the importance
of working together. Taking what they've learned here and applying it to other volunteer work.
Volunteers also have the opportunity
to learn about the many important community organizations
that provide vital services and programs for the Asian/Pacific
communities. We hope to instill in them the importance of
Many of our Nihonmachi Street Fair committee
members that you see at the event started out as student volunteers. Not
only are they overseeing specific areas of the Fair, but they
are also the guiding force that keeps this important community
event alive and thriving.
