Who We Are

What makes YFF possible

Youth For Future is an organization that is driven by the  collaboration of youth across Japan. Starting as an IB CAS project in 2021, it is now aiming and preparing to become a fully registered non-profit organization in Japan.

Our History

In its early stages, YFF's primary objective was to connect service clubs across different international schools in Japan, working towards raising awareness and taking action on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Rather than passing the project to another IB student, the organization's founder, Emre Caglar, decided to elevate it by planning to register it as a non-profit organization in mid-2023. However, the leadership team recognized a need for a more defined mission and vision for YFF, feeling that focusing on all SDGs was not effective.

In late 2023, after numerous planning sessions and increased involvement of university students, YFF transitioned into a non-profit organization with a focus on improving education quality in both underdeveloped and developed countries.

As YFF, our current aim is to achieve this goal through a newly launched initiative called "Project Kaizen." This project embodies our strategy to impact underprivileged communities of children in Japan and globally, while instilling a service-learning mindset to students supporting our initiatives. 

Now, YFF collaborates with various NPOs and organizations which have the vision of helping children in various underprivielged communities. 

Our Values

At Youth For Future (YFF), our values revolve around the transformative power of education. We believe that education is the solution to all of the global issues that are prevalent in our society. Our commitment lies in enhancing the quality of education in diverse communities, including those that are underdeveloped and developed. Below are our three key values that drive the purpose of our organization. 



 Through the different YFF branches established in schools all around Japan, we believe that while getting students aware of the importance of student agency, we can also create a positive impact towards the educational institutions in underdeveloped countries. 



While we take responsibility for shaping the leaders of the next generation, we are committed to instilling a sense of responsibility in students as well, empowering them to make informed decisions and contribute positively to society.



We are driven by a passion for education and its potential to create positive change. Our enthusiasm fuels our efforts to make a meaningful impact on the quality of education and inspire a lifelong love for learning.
