There are a variety of programs and opportunities for youth in the Nikkei community geared toward building an understanding of culture, heritage, leadership and community service. Come learn all about them at the Nikkei Youth Programs Showcase on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple, 505 E. Third St., Los Angeles.

The showcased programs are:

Tanoshii Fun Camp

Camp Musubi

The event will feature testimonials from students on the future of the community and the impact of these programs. Organizers hope that students, parents and community members will walk away with a sense of what opportunities are available for youth as well how to get involved.
