With the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ashinaga has started turning towards online resources and seeking the help of remote volunteers, particularly in the area of English education support for the Japanese scholars. In 2021, the Ashinaga Kokorojuku in Tokyo started an English conversation partner program for Japanese scholars. Volunteers from all over the world pair up with Ashinaga Japanese university scholars and participate in English conversation sessions online.
If you are looking for a safe way to volunteer during the pandemic while contributing to the Ashinaga’s educational support, do consider joining as a conversation partner.
