Partnership for Youth (P4Y): Shaping Vision 2030 is an eight-day youth leadership forum, developed and organized by the East-West Center (EWC) in close partnership with the Hiroshima Prefectural Board of Education. The program will harness new technologies and the transformative power of international exchange to provide a platform for participating students to engage in meaningful dialogue and exchange about their shared future and the future of their communities, with the specific focus on community revitalization and sustainability. The program will involve approximately 70 high school students and 30 educators from Hiroshima and 35 high school students and teachers from the Philippines, Indonesia, New Zealand, and U.S. mainland communities. In addition, 50 high school students from Oahu, Hawai‘i, will also participate in the program.

The program will immerse the student participants in hands-on, project-based learning experiences that enable them to gain firsthand knowledge about issues of community revitalization and sustainability in real-world contexts, and to develop and practice 21st century skills, including problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity, through a design thinking process, all the while having fun in intellectually and physically safe learning environments. Moreover, this international experience will provide participating students with an unparalleled opportunity for personal and academic growth — from learning a new culture and developing active leadership skills to growing a global network of friends — all the while adding experiences that foster knowledge and dispositions today’s students will need for success in our fast-changing interconnected world.
