Kids/Teen AOB
FFSC has collaborated with CYP and the School Liaison Officer in an effort to help children and teens assimilate to life in NAF Atsugi and Japan. This program has been instrumental in helping both kids and teens assimilate to their new home. FFSC provides information regarding the rules and regulations of the base, as well as fun places for Atsugi youth to explore (Tokyo Disneyland, Fuji Q Amusement Park). The program also gives youth a chance to learn the train system and explore the local area around the base. We couple this program with a transition piece to help youth connect with some that are getting ready to leave Japan. It gives the youth who are transitioning both in and out Japan a chance to connect and share their experiences with one another. The participants share these experiences over pizza and other snacks to help form lasting connections with one another.
