If you or a friend are former JETs and have a continued interest in supporting the JET Program and the Japanese-American community, a position with JETAA is a fantastic way to get involved! JETAA opens up so many opportunities to volunteer, forge friendships, and build your network.
Above all, JETAA is about creating community. It’s about finding your people. It’s about giving back. Plus, we have a pretty great time while we do it!
Voting will take place until our Shinnenkai on February 16th, where we’ll announce the election results. We hope you’ll join us!
