We invite all university students and young professional alumni of programs and events managed and funded by the TOMODACHI Initiative since our inception in 2011 to join the TOMODACHI Generation Summit 2017. The Summit promotes and deepens the ties between TOMODACHI alumni and provides alumni a platform to develop future engagements in Japan and the United States. This is the first time the content of the TOMODACHI Summit is planned by the alumni for the alumni community of the TOMODACHI Generation. This Summit is made possible by the generous support of The Prudential Foundation, sponsor of the TOMODACHI Alumni Leadership Program.
