Volunteering

Cute Mrs. Narusawa and Volunteer picAre you looking for an opportunity to join the warmest, most wonderful group of volunteers anywhere? We invite you to join our team! Nikkei Concerns' volunteers range in age from the very young to the very old, and are at the heart of all we do. Our volunteers allow our organization to reach higher, go farther, and serve hundreds more than we ever could without them. They serve in an endless variety of ways, but have one trait in common: generosity that comes from a sense of kimochi -- a deep, compassionate sense of caring for the residents and participants of our programs.

Here are just some of the ways that you can volunteer your time:
