"Volunteering with the Skill Development Program has been one of my most memorable experiences at Gifu-city. I formed friendships with my fellow teammates as we got to work together to achieve a common goal. The staff who run this program guide us well and are extremely supportive. I enjoyed spending my summer break volunteering in this program"- 2018 Summer Semester
