Lighthouse / Takuyo Corporation

About Lighthouse Career Encourage

Lighthouse (Takuyo Corporation) was founded in 1989 with the main purpose being the publishing of a magazine for the Japanese-speaking community in the greater Los Angeles area. Lighthouse Career Encourage (LCE) is a department under Lighthouse that has provided educational services to students since 2000. LCE provides customized educational programs to those who study in Japan with the cooperation of local educational institutions or companies located in Los Angeles.

Our tie-in educational institutions and companies in Los Angeles are "world-class" innovative experts in each field. Our goal is to offer students something more than just gaining knowledge or acquiring skills.

Los Angeles is one of the most multiracial, multicultural, and multilingual cities not only in the United States, but in the world. We believe that students, through living in this city, learning new things, and meeting new people, will have great opportunities to examine their own stereotypes, to discover new horizons, and to develop a stronger sense of themselves. Furthermore, our program will offer students amazing experiences to foster "borderless communication skills".

It is clear that one cannot acquire all of the above in a short period. Our program may be just one of the more memorable events in our students' lives. LCE's service is based on our strong hope for each student that he or she will develop their potential and someday see fruitful results in their careers.
