US-10 Rocky Mountain

rmjetaa-logo-whiteBGRMJETAA is headquartered in Denver, CO, but we cover all of Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. We are always looking to strengthen our outlying RMJETAA communities create/ grow sub-chapters. If you are interested in heading up a sub-chapter outside of the Denver-metro area, please let us know!

We are an active chapter with over 500 members and are an integral part of our local Japanese community. We support departing and returning JETs, bring Japanese culture to our local community, engage in professional development/ networking, and most importantly, enjoy a great group of friends in purely social settings. We welcome JET alums as well as general community members looking to connect with Japan at all of our events. If you move into the RMJETAA area (CO, WY, NM, UT), please contact us so we can get you into our database and keep you connected with the local Japanese and JETAA community! Contact us:
