In honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month we are spotlighting our Tokyo – Frost Valley Partnership.

The Tokyo New York YMCA Partnership (TNYP) was formed in 1979 in order to serve the needs of an ever-growing Japanese population in New York, with Tatsuo Honma as its first Executive Director. Eventually, the collaboration between the Tokyo and Frost Valley YMCAs deepened, and in 1991 the TNYP changed its name to the Tokyo – Frost Valley YMCA Partnership (TFYP).

The TFYP provides a safe space for Japanese youth and families to connect with peers in a shared language and culture throughout the year, especially at the Summer Camp while enjoying the typical summer camp experience. Additionally, the TFYP holds culture sharing events in many forms, including exchange programs, workshops, and performances by special guests. These opportunities build understanding, awareness and openness. Through culture sharing, appreciation and respect are woven into the very fabric of our Frost Valley community.
