Finishing up on JET and returning home doesn’t necessarily mean your JET experience is over. Apart from the personal friendships and bonds you make with friends, workmates and students, if you’re lucky, it’s also about the incredible experience and skills you’ve developed, whether it be from negotiating your way through a different culture, volunteering at local community events and generally doing that whole growing and maturing thing that apparently is the “in thing” these days.
That’s why JETAA (JET Alumni Association) exists. Not just a social group (although there’s no party like a party when JETs get together), we also provide an avenue for you to get involved in local Japanese communities and organisations outside of Japan, so that you can continue doing what you love the best about being on the JET Programme—whether it be keeping up your Japanese language skills, getting the insider knowledge on the local Japanese scene, making networks for careers and business opportunities, or just hanging out with the only group of people in the world who can relate to all your stories, in-jokes and interests. And with chapters all around the world, we’re kinda like the Illuminati. Except real and less about world conquest and more lovable. *whispers* You’re never alone.
So if you’re on your way back home, tadaima and otsukaresamadeshita. And why not give us a go? Hit up your local chapter and say hello. Looking forward to hearing from you!
