WHO WE ARE


What is CIEE?

The Council on International Educational Exchange, known as CIEE, is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to helping people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.


Founded in 1947, CIEE has developed a wide variety of programs and services for students and teachers at secondary through university levels and for related constituencies. Today, CIEE is one of the world’s leading operators of international exchange programs and related services around the globe. Since its beginning chartering transatlantic ocean liners after World War II, CIEE has grown to employ 400 professionals working in more than 50 countries to deliver CIEE’s diverse programs and services. CIEE is governed by an international Board of Directors elected by its 300 member academic institutions. The Board includes representation from members and concerned business organizations. Membership is open to academic institutions that meet prescribed standards.


^ Introduction of CIEE Japan

Founded in 1965, CIEE JAPAN has been helping thousands of students, professionals, and educators gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering the most comprehensive, relevant, and valuable exchange programs available. CIEE has the central office in Tokyo as well as the regional branch in Kyoto and Fukuoka. CIEE Japan will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015.


Since 1981, CIEE has been working closely with Educational Testing Service (ETS) of the United States on administration of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®) and acts as a regional representative in Japan for various ETS products and services. According to ETS, CIEE has helped make TOEFL ITP a worldwide assessment, as well as a program requirement in several educational institutions in Japan, including the oldest and top-ranked institution in the country, the University of Tokyo. Each year, more than 200 institutions globally—including 21 CIEE member universities—use the TOEFL ITP Assessment Series. The test is used by colleges and universities, English language programs, and other agencies throughout the world to measure students’ English language proficiency in order to place students in English language programs; to measure progress throughout the programs; to fulfill a language requirement; or to assess faculty or staff proficiency.

Way to the Alliance

Originally, CIEE US was the member of the Alliance. Later, CIEE Japan started working with CIEE US. Then CIEE US stopped working with the Alliance because they focused long term study abroad to foreign universities. Instead, CIEE Japan began to work with the Alliance so that the numbers of outgoing students have grown rapidly.


CIEE Japan applied for associate membership in 2006, then was voted and accepted in 2010. Motivation for being a part of the Alliance has been consistent. CIEE Japan organizes the training for camp leaders and conducts the pre-departure orientation for outgoing volunteers. Feedback from our volunteers as well as the host institution of incoming volunteers became quite positive over the years.


Our key words when we promote workcamps are:

  1. “Bring young people to your institution (or community, school) to have International experience staying in Japan” (Local partners)

  2. “Grow, Discover, and meet new people globally” (Potential volunteers)

  3. “Help bridging local community and world” (Sponsors)


General Conditions

  1. Must be over 18 years-old

We can neither accept a high school student nor a teenager who is 17 or lower.


  1. Attend a camp from the beginning to the end

Japanese people are very punctual. No delay is allowed except an emergency. Since we usually organize camps consisting of less than 5 volunteers, each individual are huge asset to the project. Therefore, arriving late or/and leaving early does cause a certain impact to the host organization as well as other volunteers , the project leader and most of all, people in the local community. In additions, some projects are held in rural area. There are not enough English sign boards to guide you to one place to another. Each year, there are certain numbers of volunteers who get lost and cannot come to the meeting point on time. Please have yourself enough time for your travel.


  1. Have to be a good communicator

Japanese workcamps are very unique. International volunteers are often introduced to the local community and they do many activities together. Therefore, we look for volunteers who are outgoing, sociable and friendly to Japanese people. Anyone who has an interest in Japanese culture or languages is welcomed. We expect volunteers who have a motivation not only for experiencing life or sightseeing the landmarks, but also contributing the society and its people.


TIPS FOR VOLUNTEERS


These are very important information about the work camp in Japan.

Please look it through before sending a volunteer application to us.



1. Highlight

We organize international workcamps every year in Japan. The number of international volunteers has once decreased in the year 2011 because of the impact of 3.11 earthquakes in East Japan. We have been working very hard to improve the situation and welcome more volunteers from overseas. In 2012, we successfully organized the camps throughout the country and accepted about 100 international volunteers around the world.


2. Language

Not like other countries, it is hard to find English-speaking environment in Japan. Although we emphasize on using English as a common language for international volunteers and the leader, the host organization and people in the local community are not used to speak/listen in English.

Therefore, we appreciate if the volunteers can at least try to communicate in Japanese with these local people. Some projects in Japan involve quite a lot of local volunteers, especially when it is run jointly with their regular activity/camp.


3. Culture

Once you join CIEE work camp in Japan, you will find our culture very different from your own.

Since our country is not consisted of immigrants, most citizens are Japanese and they are not really good at opening up themselves to other races or nationalities. Instead, we usually hope others to come communicate with us. The word “Passive” may describe how we are in encountering new people.

On the other hand, we have a very polite and welcoming culture. It may result from the fact that the size of “service industries” has been huge in Japan. We used to say the customer or guest is “the king” so we have to treat them as our superior.

You should keep in mind that public affection is generally hatred by Japanese people. You may not directly find out by their facial expression, but they really are not in favor of it. If the volunteer join the project with his/her partner or significant others please pay attention to the manner.

4. Insurance

Volunteers are not covered by any CIEE insurance. It is their responsibilities to cover the whole period of his /her stay in Japan.


5. Transportation fee

Each volunteer is responsible for arranging their transportation to/from the meeting point of the camp at their expenses.


6. Requirements

Motivation letter, Volunteer's Picture (A copy of your passport is acceptable)


7. Leader

We usually assign 1 project leader in each camp. We recruit them according to their motivation, English skill and experiences requested by the host organization. Since the project leader act as a coordinator, an advisor and most of all a good communicator to bridge the volunteers with the local community, we pay a good attention to who is qualified for the position. Once the assignment is settled, we provide a half day orientation so that they understand the role and responsibilities for the project. Once the camp begins, we closely work with local coordinator and the leader so that each camp goes smoothly. After the workcamp finishes, we share the project report from the leader with the host organization, in order to improve the quality of the camp in the future.
