Who We Are
What We Do
The Awaji Youth Federation (AYF) was founded in 2017 by the Pasona Group, one of Japan`s leading human resources firms dedicated to solving society`s problems and to the revitalization of regional communities.
With its headquarters on Japan`s beautiful Awaji Island, AYF creates a unique global community where the next generation of leaders gather with passion to challenge themselves. Its sought-after Fellowship Program offers successful candidates the chance to be part of a diverse community, coming together across cultures, backgrounds, and disciplines to find new solutions to global issues.
At the same time, AYF Fellows immerse themselves in a uniquely Japanese environment, gaining a rare inside view into the land where so much innovation and technology, rich history, culture, and tradition was born.
