Calling all JET Alums!  We need YOU to help send-off the latest JETs!  You are cordially invited to join our Pre-Departure Seminar Planning Session on THURSDAY MAY 22.  The Pre-Departure Seminar is SATURDAY JUNE 21. The seminar is a one-day event designed to help new JETs leaving for Japan this summer to prepare for their adventure. During the planning session we will decide what topics will be presented during the seminar, choose a keynote speaker and MC, and tackle other logistical challenges.  This is your chance to impart your unique wisdom and perpsective on these nervous and excited kohai!

Even if you are unavailable to be present on June 21 for the actual seminar, we would still love your help in the planning phases (we’ll even mention you in the closing credits).  We would especially like to get newly returned JET Alumni involved, as we veterans are getting a little rusty on our Nippon-411…

Please RSVP to Megan at so she can add your name to the building security list. Hope you can make it!
