Okinawa is home to our First Chapter! The leadership there is coordinating service events that help military families find community through FRiendship and engage with the local community by doing activities that leave a positive mark.
Enter the RING and lead!
The Board are the facilitators between the local chapter and Freedom's Ring USA and local MCCS private organization coordinators.
The Roles are nominated by the current board, interviewed by Freedom's Ring USA and then elected by the local chapter. The 4 board positions are:

While you are in Okinawa, you are invited to our events. Some events by nature of our volunteer work will be restricted, but we try to offer variety of service activities to our chapter.
Our Raised to Serve events are designed for children and our RING Leaders events are designed for adults. Sometimes there can be cross over to make it a family event.
Our facebook page is the best way to get up to date information and see the events that are planned.
