Do you live in upstate New York and wish you had more contact with other former JETs in the area? Feeling left out because youâ€™re far from the JETAANY hub in Manhattan? My name is Kate Chevarley (ALT in Niigata-ken, 2004-2006), and I will be moving to Ithaca in August to begin my MBA at Cornell. After my time on the JET Program, I worked as a fundraiser for two and a half years at Harvard Medical School and served as Treasurer of the New England JET Alumni Association. I will be launching a new Finger Lakes subchapter upon my arrival in Ithaca and hope to connect with other ex-JETs in the area!Â Potential events include nihongo-dake dinners, hanami, wine tastings, and other social and cultural activities to promote networking among JET alumni.
Please contact Kate Chevarley at fingerlakes (at) jetaany [dot] org for more information.
