New JUMP partnership with YCAPS extends reach into Yokosuka
JUMP is pleased to officially announce a formal partnership with the Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies (YCAPS). YCAPS aims to promote the study of strategic, diplomatic, and legal issues affecting the Asia-Pacific Region, and this partnership allows JUMP to extend its outreach to service members in Japan. Capitalizing on Yokosuka City’s unique pool of global expertise and rich maritime heritage, YCAPS seeks to build networks between individuals, promote dialogue, provide world-class educational opportunities and enable professional mentorship.
To date, YCAPS has already hosted many successful events, ranging from social lunches and film screenings to more formal discussions on the importance of the U.S.-Japan alliance and role of Europe in Asia. Click here to view all upcoming events from both JUMP and YCAPS.
