Kansha Project and Youth Summit


The Kansha Project is a JACL Chicago program that connects self-identified Japanese Americans, ages 18–25, to the continuing legacy of the Japanese American community’s incarceration during World War II. The program centers around an educational trip to Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo neighborhood and the Manzanar National Historic Site.

Kansha Project was funded, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, and the Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program.

The Kansha project takes place every year in June.

Orientation: June 13
Trip: June 14–17
Culmination: June 23
