Apply now for 2018 visit to Japan
The Programme gives young leaders, working in health and social services in the areas of older people, persons with disability and youth, the opportunity to travel to other countries to learn about innovative ways to solving problems in their respective fields. It's a reciprocal programme for participating countries so, in return, New Zealand has the opportunity to send delegates to Japan. You can apply for the 2018 Young Leaders Japan visit here.
