AbstractThe aim of this article is to analyze a questionnaire survey of NPOs/NGOs and to illustrate the consciousness of those organizations on their educative partnerships with universities or higher education organizations. After the Central Council for Education in Japan made the Report on Experiential Education of Youth in 2002, K-12 and higher education institutions have developed new pedagogy such as active learning and education organizations have engaged their students in experiential education such as service-learning, volunteer activities and internship. However, NPOs/NGOs expect such institutions or organizations to contribute to promoting citizenship education for youth, or to fostering human resources for their future activities and management. The results of the questionnaire are as follows. First, most of NPOs/NGOs have positive consciousness of educative partnership with higher education organizations. Second, enterprise projects or activities especially tend to be regarded as positive since they might contribute to achieving NPOs/NGOs' mission. Third, NPOs/NGOs consider that such activities could give students high educational effect. Fourth, NPOs/NGOs are inclined to keep their partnership in spite of the fact that some of them find difficulty to maintain students' motivation for activities and learning. Finally, there are few NPOs/NGOs which currently hold formal contracts with their partner institutions.
