  • We want to go global. We will bridge differences in societies beyond New York and Tokyo through our volunteer programs Former NYdV staff started TKdV in Tokyo – we want to keep expanding our organization to serve the world!
  • We would like to increase the number of beneficiaries. We will need more supporters and more volunteers. Here is how we can accomplish this…(next slide)
  • We have visited 20 locations so far – we can double the size in two years! There are sixteen hundred children currently participating in our Japanese cultural after-school program and we will serve thirty-two hundred children by 2013. Japanese Spa Day is done annualy -> We want to increase this event to 4 times a year. Explore Japanese Culture is the first step for many of the participating children to learn about different culture, and we’d like to take this to the next level! The Global Citizen Alumni Club will help them to have an opportunity to visit Japan.
  • Right now, the after school program covers these locations in blue. [CLICK] We want to double the number of locations in two years. [CLICK] By expanding, We can continue to deepen our involvement with local communities.
  • We would like to increase the number of volunteers from 600 a year to twelve hundred a year. We would also like to strengthen partnerships with Japan related organizations such as JET Alumni Association, JAJA (which is Japanese American and Japanese in America), and other organizations.
  • In addition, our goal includes raising next generation of leaders. We currently have two interns from Japan now. They came to NY especially to intern for NYdV. Yuki-san will be here for 3 months, and Sonoka-san will be here for one year! They are here to learn NPO management and other leadership skills – Yuki-san wants to work in the corporate social responsibility field, and Sonoka-san wants to work in a non-profit organization, when they return to Japan. Yuki-san was a project leader to arrange this party tonight with Maki-san. Yuki-san has only been here for two weeks but took leadership in making this event happen. I am sure that when she returns to Japan, she will be a great leader! I would like to acknowledge all volunteers involved in making this event happen -- Thank you so much! Let’s give them a hand!
  • I’d like to make a point here that NYdV historically relied on a few large supporters – US-Japan foundation and New York City. As you can imagine, NYC is going through budget cut after the economic crisis and reduced the budget for our EJC program. By increasing support from individuals, we can still achieve the short-term goals. We want to increase individual supporters by 5 times… to 500 people. We want to increase corporate supporters by 3 times to 120 organizations.
  • Simply read the table
  • We’d like to achieve our goals in two years and NYdV can be helped to get there! There are various ways you can help – 1. promote NYdV and provide referrals to us, 2. we need your knowledge and expertise, and 3. your contribution, either monetary or non-monetary mean a lot to us!!
  • We want more people to know us, and there is a limit where we can reach through our existing network / relationship. Please tell your friends, family, co-workers and community members about us! More people know about us, the more opportunities come up. We believe our programs can be applied to different places! If you know any organizations which might be interested in our program, please let us know!
  • As we discussed, we are now officially running five committees to manage NYdV day-to-day operations. We still need more committee members who have knowledge, experience and expertise in these areas.
  • Lastly but not least, we welcome your contributions in monetary or non-monetary form. We can help ONE child to become Global Citizen through our EJC program for $20 We can enrich ONE senior’s life through our Japanese Spa Day for $50 We can purchase clear-up equipment for ONE US-Japan Clean-Up program for $100 In-kind donation of products for our programs, such as yukata for kids, raffle prizes,clothing for fundraising bazzer or even event space for our fundraising parties are greatly appreciated!
  • Additional 470 supporters might sound very difficult to achieve… however, let’s say, we have 70 peopple here. everyone here talk to 3 people to join our support network, and they talk to 1 person to join -> then we’ll have 470 people in no time! I understand it easy to say, but I don’t think it’s impossible or too aggressive! We really need your help to involve more supporters to provide more EJC and Japanese Spa Day programs to children and seniors waiting for us!
  • We have also developed our own products – NY de Volunteer original bracelet and necklace. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of these products will be donated to NY de Volunteer. You can purchase it today at the desk in the back.
  • Here is another way in which you can support NY de Volunteer. For $33, you can rent a yukata, obi, and have someone come to help you put it on.
  • We also have hand-made origami earrings You can pre-order them through the staff members here with the order form.
