Be a part of the National AJET 2018-19 Council!

 AJET Elections

Applications for the upcoming year are now open!


National AJET Council members volunteer to support the entire JET population from before they arrive in Japan, throughout their time on the programme and even after they leave.

Are you a natural born leader? Are you an avid event planner looking to coordinate functions in your block? Are you looking to give something back to the JET community? Then why not apply to be a part of the National AJET 2018-2019 Council?

Apply to be the next Block Representative, and plan memorable events for your fellow JETs, while representing concerns and opinions at a national level. Perhaps you are a CIR – why not consider running for the role of CIR Representative and serving your fellow Coordinators for International Relations across Japan?    

Are you interested in fronting the leadership behind National AJET? If so, then applying to be a part of the Executive Council might be for you! National AJET will be accepting applications for the role of Chair, Vice Chair, and Treasurer. Put your management skills to use and lead our team of volunteers!
