Message from USJETAA:

Please join USJETAA Board members, along with Paige Cottingham-Streater, Chair, USJETAA and Laurel Lukaszewski, Acting Executive Director, USJETAA to learn more about their plans and goals for USJETAA, and network with fellow JET alumni residing in NY.

Over the past three years, the U.S.-Japan Bridging Foundation has been working on an initiative to strengthen the capacity of the network of JET Alumni Association chapters and individuals across the U.S. In 2015, the United States Japan Exchange & Teaching Programme Alumni Association (USJETAA), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, was established to act as an umbrella organization to provide support and resources to this growing network of over 30,000 Americans.

We look forward to discussing ways in which we can work together to help broaden the outreach of this strong network of Americans with close personal and professional ties to Japan.
