A Call for Volunteers

AJET is looking for volunteers to staff the Education & Professional Development Department.

AJET has made assisting the education and professional development of JETs one of its top priorities this year. Education News, the Outstanding Educators Program, Japanese Language Tools, Professional Development, and Teaching Resources are just a few of the areas on the AJET website that require constant updating and coordination, and we can’t do it alone. To continue to provide these services for everyone, we are asking for volunteers to work from home or school a few hours a week, to help us make our website a vibrant, dynamic resource for JETs. If you are interested in any of these areas, and would like to give back to the JET community, please contact Bryan Darr at

Volunteer details:

Workload – No more than 10 hours a week.

Meetings – The education department will hold biweekly meetings at a time that works best for all volunteers.

Communication – To keep up to date on what’s going on in the Education Department, you will need to check your email at least once a day.

Compensation – Once you are able to confirm a commitment, you will be added to the AJET website with your respective job title under “Education Department,” and can use your work as content for your resume.
