The 4th Youth Conference hosted by Yokohama YMCA "Let's learn about Ukraine"


Now we see the news about Ukraine and Russia every day. However, we rarely have an opportunity to think about the culture and life in Ukraine.

In this program, the guest speaker, a youth from Ukraine who is now studying Japanese, is going to talk about her country.



For example,

・The cultural differences between the provinces.

・The educatioal system in Ukraine.

・Traditional clothes and the meaning of them.


You will have a chance to learn about the real lives of the Ukrainian people.


We hope that this event will help the participants feel closer to and think about Ukraine through leaning about its culture.

This program is for those in their teens and 20s.

We, the Yokohama YMCA Youth community team want to support young people who are interested in Ukraine and looking for a way to support it.
