“Certified NPO Switch” which works on supporting young people mainly in Miyagi Prefecture and working on supporting young people mainly in Kanto and Kansai
“Kizuki Co., Ltd.” has been commissioned by Miyagi Prefecture (under the jurisdiction of the Mental Health Promotion Office) to operate the “Miyagi Prefecture Online Whereabouts Support Model Project for 2021”.
Our community has been working on supporting young people with a variety of issues for many years using various methods, and we will utilize that track record to tackle this project.
This project targets people residing in Miyagi Prefecture who have become hikikomori who have difficulty communicating face-to-face or going out after completing their compulsory education, and provide an “online place where they can easily participate with peace of mind.” . This online place will help users recover their connections with society and improve their ability to interact with others other than their families through interaction support and consultation support, allowing them to take the next step in using a face-to-face place. I aim to move on.
