The Vancouver Japanese Language School and Japanese Hall is a non-profit organization based in Vancouver’s Historic Powell Street Neighbourhood that provides Japanese Language Classes, Childcare, and Community Programs and events to the broader community. Our board is comprised of  up to 11 volunteer directors which govern the organization and are elected by its membership at an Annual General Meeting. The board is responsible for stewarding VJLS-JH’s continued sustainability, strategic direction, financial health, and reputation.

All operational matters, including the management of staff and programs, are overseen by the Executive Director. The Executive Director is supported by two Division Managers: Children’s World and the VJLS Principal. The Executive Director is hired and managed by the board to ensure that the organization’s strategic goals and priorities are being achieved responsibly.
