Twice a year AJET gathers information and opinions through the National AJET surveys. Data AJET gathers is presented in a joint session with the three ministries (MIC, MOFA, MEXT) and CLAIR to help guide the JET Program forward. If you want your voice to be heard, this is one of the best opportunities you’ll have, so be sure to take a few minutes out of your day to complete the survey! Those who finish the survey will be in the running to win an Amazon Japan gift card!
If you need some extra encouragement, know that AJET report findings have helped to ban smoking from school staff rooms and raise the JET Program maximum tenure from 3 to 5 years. Your opinion is valuable and can lead to lasting change through this program! We look forward to hearing from you.
It’s that time again – spook season’s been and gone, Bonfire Night’s right around the corner, and we’re bringing you the November issue of Connect! This month’s all about looking after yourself, something that’s twice as important when you’re this far from home. We’ve got tips for at-home yoga practice, soothing recipes for those chilly nights, and tons of inspiration for a good dose of self care. Itching to get out of the apartment? Check out our events calendar and November releases to stay right up to date with everything going on! Now’s also a great time to take up a new hobby, whether it’s one that gets you moving in challenging ways (see our features on Salsa dance meetups and an international surfing championship), rocking out to the sounds of the Tokyo Garage scene, or finding a style that’s really you.
