Call for a New Philly Subchapter Rep!

Do you wish you could go to JETAANY events, but live outside of the New York City metropolitan area? Lucky for you, we have active subchapters in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Pittsburgh! We would also love to help build JET alumni connections and communities across the tri-state area.

We are currently looking for someone to serve as a subchapter representative for the Philadelphia subchapter, as our terrific current rep, Rashaad Jorden, will be moving to England. The representative would help organize and advertise local gatherings, share Japan-related events nearby, manage the group’s Facebook page and work with the other subchapters (like nearby New Jersey) and the JETAANY Executive Board to create joint events. To see a list of our current subchapter reps (and JETAANY officers):

If you are interested in becoming a representative, offering ideas, or even simply in hearing about events outside of NYC, let us know by emailing Pam Kavalam at
