About

Interested in volunteering at a brand new exhibition in Los Angeles’ Little

Tokyo? We would love to have you!

Go For Broke National Education Center (GFBNEC) recently opened a new educational exhibition called The Defining Courage Experience in the historic Nishi Hongwanji Building in the Little Tokyo Historic District of Los Angeles. The exhibition explores the concept of courage through the lives of the young Japanese Americans of World War II, and asks modern visitors to act with similar courage in their own lives. The exhibition is dynamic, hands-on, and experience-based approach, engaging visitors through participatory learning experiences. The Defining Courage Experience encourages dialogue and critical thinking about tolerance and social justice in a democratic society, stimulates civic awareness, and fosters empowerment. The new exhibit space is seeking volunteer Exhibit Ambassadors.
