The Mirai Generations Leadership Program (MGLP) encourages participants to CONNECT, INSPIRE, and ACT within the Japanese American community. It provides the opportunity for engagement with leaders to serve the JA community. Participants will create the framework to become meaningful contributors and mentors to the JA community and ensure its growth into the future.
The Mirai Generations Leadership Program will nurture, connect and support emerging leaders who are passionate about and dedicated to the Japanese American community and its culture. This program will support these leaders in various roles to grow and sustain our community and showcase the JA culture. It is our hope that these participants will later serve as mentors to ensure that our JA culture and community thrives into the future.
