Become a Global Citizen

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) Leadership Institute will select 18 participants for the 2018 CBCF Emerging Leaders: Japan Exchange Program “KAKEHASHI Project” in partnership with the government of Japan. Through this initiative, the CBCF, the Embassy of Japan, and the Japanese International Cultural Center (JICE) aim to increase African-American interest in and exposure to the culture of Japan, thereby expanding opportunities for African Americans in an era of increasing globalization.

In 2018, one (1) group of 18 participants will be selected for the program. The project will take place in and around Tokyo, Japan over eight days. The program will include site visits to cultural and historical landmarks, lectures on U.S. – Japan relations, visits to high tech/traditional industries, and an overnight visit with a Japanese family. Prior to departure, participants will take part in orientation activities in Washington, DC followed by a debrief session upon their return.

CBCF is committed to increasing access to opportunities that will develop leadership qualities for our participants. While many students do not have the resources or exposure to participate in international opportunities, CBCF is excited to partner with the Japanese government to expand access to global opportunities for emerging African- American leaders.
