It’s that time of year again… Our new batch of JET participants are preparing to embark on their adventure to Japan and the Pre-Departure Orientation is just around the corner! We are currently looking for genki and energetic JETAA senpai to help this year’s departing JETs prepare for the experience of a lifetime. Date and location of this year’s orientation is TBD.
We – a small group of JET alumni – are looking for others to join us in a life-changing project: sponsoring a Syrian refugee family.
Those of us in the JET community know what it’s like to struggle in a foreign country, from figuring out groceries to navigating local transit. We want to tap into that wisdom and zest for adventure. Our group will sponsor a family through an organization dedicated to walking Canadians through the process of sponsoring Syrian refugees.
Please contact Amber Hildebrandt, Natalie Bay and Stephanie De Young at Senpai@jetaatoronto.ca.
Join JETAA for a picnic and walk around Riverdale Farm, a long-standing family favorite in the downtown core on Sunday, August 30th!
JETAA is excited to further the JET Programme mandate and present our first family-focused event to cater to our increasingly diverse membership. We are reaching out to all JET alumni, including those with kids and who want to stay involved with JETAA Toronto. Of course, a day in the park is a great day for anyone, so we’d love to see all of our alumni members, with or without children, out for an afternoon of relaxed fun. Continue reading
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.
