Playground of Hope #75
Address: 1-8 Maihama, Urayasu-shi, Chiba 279-0031
Installation: Saturday, May 20h, 2017
Sponsor: POH General Funds
For the past 2 years, Playground of Hope has been working with youth from children's homes in Japan to engage them in entrepreneurship activities through our Real Life Learning Curriculum (RLLC). From 2017, we have started working to provide further support to young adults from these homes transitioning into the workforce.
On Saturday, May 20th, in collaboration with Hilton’s Careers@Hilton program, we invited a handful of high school children from various children’s homes in Chiba to Hilton Tokyo Bay to spend the day learning about the hospitality industry and workforce, while engaging in fun team activities. Despite being nervous in the morning, the youth and adults were soon relaxed and enjoying a fun day, which included learning some business skills, getting a hotel tour, and creating newsletters.
The day’s activities served as a orientation in preparation for job training and shadowing in summer 2017. Thank you, Hilton Tokyo Bay!
