Featured Social Change Project
Title: Voices of the 'Comfort Women' (CW) Movement - an Interview Anthology
The "Voices of the CW Movement" project started as an idea to put human voices and multidisciplinary perspectives at the forefront in teaching about the history and implications of military sexual slavery (or what is commonly known as the 'comfort women' issue). From 2017 onwards, youth-led interviews were conducted with artists, academics, and advocates who had expertise on the CW issue, in order to unearth these very perspectives. Empowerment from ALPHA Education came in the form of establishing these connections, helping youth think about the questions they would like to ask, and providing support and guidance at various steps along the way.
ALPHA Youth Council
ALPHA Youth Council (AYC) is independent from ALPHA Education, and composed of youths and young professionals between the ages of 14 and 30 years old. The Advisory Youth Council contributes to sustaining the impact of ALPHA Education's four strategic directions.
AYC members become youth ambassadors through the discourse of humanity education.
AYC members provide a safe and trusting platform where young people can feel respected, give voice, become engaged in the community, take positive actions and be nurtured to become future leaders of ALPHA Education.
