Japan

Requirements

 
- Best motivation for the voluntary work (special good skills and power are not necessary)
- Responsibility to keep rules of NICE & the partners and cooperation to run the projects
- Best efforts to understand and respect cultures both of the hosts and other volunteers
- Open mind to make friends with trying to speak English (in the groups) and the local language
- To adapt and enjoy simple conditions of the living such as food and accommodation

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Most of the projects require volunteers to speak basic or good Japanese. For some of the projects that require good Japanese speaking skills, Skype interviews would be conducted with the local organization prior to project. Please click on individual projects to find out more.

Food and Accommodation


Accommodation would usually be at youth centers, public halls, schools and sometimes tents or temples that are simple but even better for the group life! Volunteers often cook by turns and enjoy global tastes.
The common language is English in most of workcamps though you had better to try local languages. In some workcamps, the hosts or volunteers organize discussions, excursions, and exchange parties with local people, school visit, sports programs, etc. It is very important to note that workcamps should be made by all volunteers with local people. Volunteers are not guests!
