Apply for the 2014 NCI Program

Apply for the 2014 NCI Program

The application deadline for the Nikkei Community Internship (NCI) is right around the corner: March 14!

The San Jose NCI experience is unique compared to the other two regions. Unlike the programs in Los Angeles and San Francisco, the San Jose interns rotate to different organizations based on the following weekly themes: health and human services; education; business and economic development; arts, culture, and spirituality; history; government and advocacy; and media and communications. The program gives the San Jose interns an overview of the community and allows them to meet a variety of people at various organizations.

Don’t miss out on this great summer opportunity!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Mochi is a must for a Japanese New Year Celebration!
It starts with toshi-koshi soba on New Year’s Eve and the first thing one has on New Year’s morning is ozoni!
Of course, mochi is part of decorating for New Year’s too, so you’ll see mochitsuki fundraisers in Japantown during this time of year. But you can get mochi in Japantown all year long, so no need tor despair!

Here’s wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2012~ Year of the Dragon~

Cheers!
