For 10 years, since 2008, Rakuten provided high school students with hands-on opportunities to experience e-commerce through the Rakuten IT School.
From 2018, this program has been revamped as the Rakuten IT School NEXT, which is aimed at proposing solutions to issues encountered by local communities, making use of Rakuten's services and technologies. For its first edition, students from ten schools across Japan worked with Rakuten employees and local residents to come up with ideas for projects to benefit their community.
