Mission Okinawa: Safe Haven (TJSDA)

Eighteen volunteers from Ontario, Canada will be travelling to Okinawa, Japan. Our volunteers will:

  1. Lead out in the Neil Nedley's Depression and Anxiety recovery and prevention program in Japanese and lead sessions at the local churches and hospital for the community. Our aim is to reach the vulnerable population who have been known to struggle with work-life balance stress, addiction and abuse.

  2. Develop early childhood educational programs to ensure that new parents and single parents have the tools to confidently parent their children.

  3. Create and execute outreach programs for children, youth and young adults at locations such as foster care homes, schools and universities.

  4. Host "meet-ups", an opportunity for the local community to practice speaking English with our team. Our aim will be to develop relationships with the community in a casual setting and introduce them to the various programs held at the local churches.

  5. Foster youth leadership at Okinawa churches through AY programs and training.

  6. Preach and engage in music ministry to encourage the local churches. We will be visiting 3 local churches where we will support their work.
