Exchange Programs

The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme is aimed at promoting grass-roots international exchange between Japan and other nations. The number of countries sending participants has risen over the years, as has the number of participants. 

JET(Japan Exchange and Teaching)プログラムは、諸外国の青年を日本に招待し、中学校や高校で英語を教えたり、地方自治体で国際交流員として働く機会を提供する事業とし て1987年に開始されました。JET青年は、日本全国各地における学校や行政組織の中で、地域や住民に密着した活動を行うことを通じて日本を経験し、母 国に帰った後、従来の日本研究者とは一味違った新しいタイプの知日家、親日家として様々な分野で活躍し、日本と母国との貴重な橋渡しとなっています。 当館では、外国語指導助手(ALT)及び国際交流員(CIR)の募集広報や面接選考、出発前のオリエンテーション、元JETの同窓会(JETAA)の活動 支援等を実施しています。(出典:在デトロイト総領事館HP)
