How ASP works
Our After School Program (ASP) at A-JIS provides a series of engaging activities every weekday after school between 15:30 and 16:45 that:
- Continues to help our young people learn through thought and action.
- Continues to help develop communication in English and collaboration with others.
- Develops leadership, creativity, empathy and fair play.
ASP also offers the chance for our young people to develop the attributes that align with our core values:
Global Leadership: Opportunities to develop responsibility, understand how to be a good leader and also a good supporter, and develop commitment and empathy.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation: A context in which to apply skills, think differently about what we do, make suggestions and follow through.
Effective Problem Solving: Sharing in developing a great activity; considering the issues within our activities.
Effective Communication: Further develop English skills and other forms of communication in a variety of contexts.
Wise Risk-Taking: Trying new activities and new experiences within those activities.
ASP Coordinator—Alex Cervantes
I’m Alex and am excited to join the Aoba community. Aligning with the school’s core values, my goal as ASP coordinator is to ensure that all our classes are run in a safe, fun environment and to organize special culminating events that showcase our students’ achievements. I am an active sports enthusiast who started a youth sports program in central Tokyo for basketball and volleyball. I also have several years of coaching experience at a high school, middle school and elementary school level for both basketball and volleyball.
This is going to be a great year and look forward to what we can achieve together with teamwork and open communication.
