Consulate’s School Caravan Program

The School Caravan Program, sponsored by the Japan Information Center of the Consulate General of Japan in New York provides speakers on all aspects of Japan to elementary, junior high and high school students. The goal of the program is to increase students’ knowledge of and interest in Japan. We are looking for former JET participants to assist us in our effort to present Japanese culture to students of all ages and background, drawing upon the experiences in Japan. This would be a volunteer (unpaid) position. The school visits take place in the daytime and presentations are made at schools within our jurisdiction. Transportations will be provided by the Consulate.

If you are interested in volunteering the School Caravan Program, please contact Noriko Furuhata at jet@ny.cgj.org of the Consulate General of Japan in New York.
