Educational Program

JASSA provides Japanese language for beginners, intermediate and advanced and Japanese calligraphy classes. 

 

In an effort to expand, JASSA wishes to also provide other classes, such as Ikebana (flower arrangement), Japanese classic dance, Tea Ceremony, Sumie painting, and classes that provide an introduction to martial arts classes.

Population(s) Served

JASSA coordinates the annual Japanese Language Contest. This annual event offers participants an opportunity to demonstrate their oral communication skills in Japanese while competing in a statewide competition. It brings attention to the Japanese language and promotes the knowledge and understanding of Japan by Americans. JASSA, in cooperation with Japanese Teachers Association of Texas and the Consulate-General of Japan at Houston, coordinates and co-sponsors this event, with additional support from the Japan Foundation and San Antonio College.

Population(s) Served

JASSA has an annual scholarship program available through the generosity of Corporate Donors and Sponsors. The purpose of the scholarship program is to promote mutual understanding of the cultures, business environments and people of the United States and Japan. It also aims to strengthen the relationship between San Antonio and its Japanese sister city, Kumamoto, Japan. A recipient is expected to maintain high standards of achievement while serving as a bridge of understanding and friendship between the peoples of the United States and Japan. Deadline for the scholarships is typically around spring of each year.

Population(s) Served

JASSA coordinates and/or sponsors various events that promote interactive engagement with Japanese culture in the local community.   Activities and events in include annual Bonnenkai, Shinenkai and Asian New Year celebrations, participation in cultural fairs, as well as sponsorship of touring artists and performers.
