Shure University provides free education within a non-traditional model for adults in Japan. The curriculum is student-driven and project-based in the spirit of democratic education. The non-profit school offers projects in a wide variety of disciplines based on student interests and interns are able to support current projects or propose and lead their own. Past project areas include art and film (including art exhibits and film festivals), solar cars, alternative energy, music programs, and support of international exchange programs and the development of English language materials.

Interns will work closely with Japanese students and staff. This is a great opportunity for students interested in developing their teaching methods and communication skills, particularly with diverse populations. Interns will have the opportunity to support an array of projects and activities and should be self-motivated and passionate about helping others.
