Young Gen. Program

The ANZCCJ Young Generation Program aims to bring together and foster new connections among the next generation of leaders in the Australia, New Zealand and Japan business community, to share information, career advice, networking and professional development. It offers excellent opportunities to meet like-minded young people while hearing from inspiring professionals who have excelled in their careers. The program was established in May 2021, as an updated version of the former Youth Empowerment Program. 

While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to prevent travel between our three countries, we hope this program allows students and professionals the chance to grow and maintain their cross-border connections, while discovering new pathways for their future careers. 

Some of the activities to expect in the coming months include:

  • Virtual networking and informative webinars
  • Mentoring and advice from business leaders in Japan, Australia and New Zealand
  • In-person networking and meetup nights (post-COVID)

Although membership of the Young Generation Program is open to anyone who wishes to participate, the target group for this program can be broken into the following four categories.

ANZCCJ Young Generation Programは、オーストラリア、ニュージーランド、日本のビジネス界で活躍する次世代のリーダーたちが集い、情報交換やキャリアアドバイス、ネットワーク作り、専門的な知識の向上など、新しい繋がりを育むことを目的としています。素晴らしいキャリアと強い影響力を持つ、その道のプロフェッショナルの方々の話を聞きながら、同じ志を持つ若い世代と出会う機会を提供します。このプログラムは、以前のYouth Empowerment Programのアップデート版として、2021年5月に設立されました。



  • バーチャルネットワーキングとお役立ちウェビナー
  • 日本、オーストラリア、ニュージーランドのビジネスリーダーによるメンタリングとアドバイス
  • 対面式のネットワーキングとミートアップナイト(新型コロナ収束後)
