Grants Highlights: Japanese American Cultural and Community Center – Ukes For Little Tokyo

At the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC), Chester Ikei teaches older adults how to play the ukulele as a way to bring them together and reduce some of the challenges of aging. The free class supported by Keiro Grant funding, called Ukuleles for Little Tokyo (U4LT), began in September 2016 and has seen interest grow with every class.
