Welcome to the New England JET Alumni Association (NEJETAA)! NEJETAA is a support network for JET alumni living in the New England area (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut). We plan and host professional development events, Japanese classes, networking, social events, and strive to promote the JET Program and Japan to our communities.
Although we’re based in the city of Boston, members can stay up-to-date on all our events and activities by joining our mailing list, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn group. You never know when a JET event could be happening near you, so check out the resources above or contact our Membership Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
