2014 Fellow Appointed to Position at United Way

Yumiko Nagai, a 2014 Fellow, started a new job in January this year with United Way as the Japan Representative. United Way is a nonprofit organization founded in the U.S. in 1887 with a current donation total suming up to six trillion US dollars.
Their focus is on creating and supporting programs that are rooted in target communities, by utilizing the spirit and know-how of the local scene. Nagai says she hopes to be able to spread this kind of grass-roots approach to community organization in Japan.
