Alece Takaoka provides learning and information support to linguistically and culturally diverse youth (CLD youth) with the goal of helping them achieve self-fulfillment through higher education and other means and becomes a bridge between Japan and their countries of origin, as well as an active member of their local communities. In order to revitalize local communities, which are facing issues such as aging, declining population, and economic stagnation, it is essential to realize a multicultural society that accepts diverse values, cultures, and customs, and that changes and develops together with them. Alece Takaoka aims to create local communities based on the education of CLD youth.
