JASO NEXT is a diverse group of young professionals aged 21-35, helping to lead our community into the future of the US-Japan relationship.

NEXT communicates through meetings and social media groups, including a closed Facebook group. NEXT hosts a diverse array of programs, which have included simple meet-ups, online sake tasting and a trivia quiz, and hosting a young group of social entrepreneurs from Japan.

NEXT also gets involved in supporting and attending other JASO committee events – including Cultural Committee and Women’s Leadership Council.
