Seeking JET alums for Satogaeri Project









CLAIR has announced the Satogaeri (“Homecoming”) Project, an exciting new program which will send former JET Program participants back to the communities where they once lived and worked as JETs. As part of the project, the Japanese government will fund trips for JET alumni to return to their JET home towns to reconnect with the friends, colleagues, and students with whom they developed close relationships. A “mini-JETAA International” meeting in Tokyo will also be part of the program.

We would love to have a JET from the Toronto area participate in this fantastic project.  In case you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact

Senpai Outreach

Been back a while?  Wish you still had a connection to your time in Japan?

We’d like to hear from you!  During the upcoming year we’re hoping to gather a group of Senpai JETAA alumni to create a new series of events that cater to the well-established alumni and their busy lives.

Events could include the theme giving back, or be focused around introducing Japanese culture to your children.  Anything is possible!

Share your ideas and let us know how you would like to be involved at a brainstorming meeting on Thursday, February 26th at 7pm.  The event will be in Toronto with a location TBD, so stay tuned for updates!

Email with any questions or to register for the February senpai event.
