学校に通い、部活で汗を流し、人によっては塾や習い事など毎日忙しく行動している高校生。彼ら彼女らの大切な人生の選択するにあたって客観的に『良い』とされる判断軸のみで決めるのではなく、自分自身どうしたいか考えた上でこれからの行動に取り組んでもらいたい。自分らしく生き、自分を『解き放って』もらいたいそんな想いからTOKIHAをつくりました。

サマーキャンプを通じて英語力を伸ばすだけでなく、海外大学のリベラルアーツベースとした新しい知識や考え方に触れ、自分について良く考え、日常生活では会わない仲間との交流のなかで自分らしく生きることについてじっくり考える時間と空間を提供します。

一人ひとりが自分らしくイキイキと行動することがより良い社会を創出していくことだと信じています。

 I am from San Jose, and am a third year studying Asian Studies. I like to draw, sing, read, and sleep. This spring, I took a semester off to work on translation and am excited to be doing something new besides school!
