Encompass Rating System by Charity Navigator

Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System evolves on a quarterly basis as we add new measures and indicators, which we call Beacons. Check back often to see how this organization’s score changes.

Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

In the summer of 2018 we would like to invite several students pursue their dreams to travel abroad and experience various aspects of Japanese society. This coming year we will continue to offer programs that we found were of notable success: Tokyo University Global Health lesson, Chemistry lab experiment with Tokyo University Doctoral student Chemists, Financial Aid consultation, overnight Kyoto Temple visitation, and Tokyo Stock Exchange banking seminar. We felt that these programs exposed the students to very novel perspectives and introduced them to unique experiences that they may not have encountered outside of Japan.

What are your strategies for making this happen?

AAYTP was incorporated in 2013 with the ideals to provide at risk youth with opportunities to explore what the world has to offer and to provide the Japanese community an exchange program with an underrepresented cultural experience. We also provide community outreach by means of cultural events and providing bilingual explanations of the struggles of at risk youth. By recruiting students from under represented cultures and school districts AAYTP volunteers provide unique opportunities for our world to grow by providing resources, tools and experiences for unheard voices to speak up and become our nation's future leaders.

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

In 2014, our student participant, Destiny, traveled to Japan and enjoyed a number of activities. Educationally, her trip included a day of shadowing at Tokyo Gakugei University International Secondary School, and tours of various museums and shrines in Kyoto. On a professional note she visited the Canadian Embassy in Japan and the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Cultural programming included a home-stay, sampling of Japanese cuisine, interacting and conversing with Japanese students, the museum tours and shrine visits mentioned above, and meeting members of the diverse international communities found in Tokyo. Not only did Destiny's trip provide her with a unique experience abroad, but also with a vision of how she might become an active member of global society in general, and Japanese society in particular, in the future. In 2014 AAYTP also was able to facilitate a march in Shibuya, Japan of over 200 people to stand in solidarity against police brutality. Coverage and support was spread on international news from Twitter to CNN. The 2015 program included two students: Micah & Eugen. This year, the students again visited the numerous cultural and professional institutions our previous scholar saw in the previous cycle. In addition to these activities, the students were treated to a day of seminars and lessons at Tokyo University. Throughout the day, they participated in chemistry laboratory experiments and collaborated with educators to ponder the big questions in the field of Global Health. As our program grew, we sought to include activities that would both expand the opportunities of our young scholars and make them more-able leaders for the world stage.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

We receive heartfelt appreciation from these under represented communities. Parents, teachers, school district faculty and other areas of these communities have all sent us feedback on the growth of these young scholars. We see the 2014 student growing as she mentored the students of 2015 and we are looking forward to seeing our 2015 students support the 2013 students.

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

Since the program's inception in 2014, we have hosted students from the Seattle-Tacoma area. We have completed two cycles of our summer exchange program. Our hope is, looking forward, to evolve beyond this region and provide opportunities for students from across the United States. Our curriculum includes social, academic, cultural, and career development.
