Posted by: The Yokosuka Council
Location: Remote
Contract: Full-time

The Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies (YCAPS) is a non-profit organization that enables professional growth and fosters grassroots connections with world-class expertise. We are seeking a Program Director for the Getting to Know Japan Webinar Series.

The Getting to Know Japan webinar series program manager/director will lead this vibrant education initiative during its second year. We seek an innovative, hands-on leader ready to take initiative and reliably deliver world-class events. Responsibilities will include working independently and as part of a team to develop, promote, recruit participants, and fulfil reporting requirements for programs aligned with YCAPS’ mission. This position will require extensive coordination with YCAPS staff members (including volunteers located across the Indo-Pacific), program sponsors, and cohorts of program participants throughout Japan.

The program manager’s responsibilities will focus on the development and delivery of YCAPS’ “Getting to Know Japan” webinar series. This weekly webinar series is specifically designed to assist the approximately 110,000 Americans living in Japan as a part of the U.S. military presence to learn about and gain greater appreciation for Japan’s culture and society. The webinars adopt a community-based approach to learning that empowers grassroots relationships with world-class expertise. Globally recognized specialists will deliver lessons on introductory level topics related to Japanese culture in a format specifically tailored to the needs of these Americans stationed in Japan. The program manager will also be required to ensure this program is administered in a manner that is synchronized with and mutually beneficial to other YCAPS programs.
