We proudly welcome two new board members, Director of Alumni Relations, Megan Buhagiar and Director of Volunteering, Aziz Krich, to the National AJET Council. Director of Alumni Relations acts as the bridge between current JETs and alumni (especially JETAA). Director of Volunteering assists in raising awareness about volunteer projects that JET participants can get involved in.
If you have inquiries for either Megan or Aziz, please reach out to them via our Contact form. You can view the current National Council here.
Time to crawl out of your kotatsu – though maybe not quiiite time to pack it away – because Spring has sprung! This month’s issue of Connect has all the features you know and love – the latest news, a jam-packed events calendar and our pick of March’s most anticipated releases (and the platforms to stream them on)! It’s the perfect time of year to take up something new, and if you’re looking for inspiration you won’t want to miss this month’s look at veganism in Japan (plus vegan peanut butter brownies!), a West Tokyo blood donation collective, and our guide to Japanese thrift stores. Need a dose of culture? Get stuck into the myths of Miyazaki, and top it off with one JET’s unforgettable experience of volunteering at a Thai orphanage.
