Journey 2 Origin

Journey to the motherland, Philippines

Since 2005, J2O has made five journeys to the Philippines and has reached over 5,000 children in the schools, orphanages and in the streets.  Mentors from United States, China, Japan, Norway and Germany have contributed to a powerful movement to ensure that children living in poverty have access to the same opportunities, activities and education that enhance their ability to learn and grow as those more fortunate to afford it.  Mentors volunteer their talent, time and efforts to make this program a success. They raise the needed funds for airfare, food, hotel, transportation and workshop materials to provide free performing arts education. Mentors work closely with the participants and give youth an opportunity to come together in a safe and inspiring environment to express themselves through the performing arts and culture.

The next mission to the Philippines will be February 2016.  If you would like to apply to be a mentor or for more information, please contact passionsociety[at]
