While there were a lot of good times on JET, there were undoubtedly some extremely difficult ones as well, and they are just as much a part of the JET experience. Therefore, the Newsletter is seeking short anecdotes about a traumatic experience you (or someone you know) had while on JET for the upcoming Fall Issue of the Newsletter. (The definition of “traumatic” is subject to your own interpretation.) Please include your prefecture and years on JET, or indicate if you prefer that your name not be included. Anecdotes should be a paragraph or two at most. (If you’re inclined to write something longer, please get in touch and discuss with me before expending time and effort.) Send all submissions to Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program Alumni Association of New York (JETAANY) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving over 2,000 members in the tri-state area. JET Alumni have all lived and worked in Japan as English teachers in the Japanese Public School System. JETAANY’s mission is to assist returning JETs with acclimating to life and work in New York, foster education and understanding of Japanese culture and strengthen the ties between JET alumni and the Japanese community. We do this through a wide variety of social, cultural, professional and athletic events throughout the year.
