Who We Are:

JETAAMN is an organization of former participants of the Japanese Exchange and Teaching (JET) program who are now living in Minnesota. The JET program is a collaboration between Japan and many countries including the US to allow for cultural exchange.

Our Goal is to assist the Alumni who are returning to America, support the local Japanese cultural community, and spread information regarding the JET program.

New JETs

Recently accepted to a new JET position? Unsure of what to expect? We understand. Try the Pre-Departure PDF here to get a start.

For new MN JETs we have a New JET Q&A to give you a brief glimpse of what the future has in store. Prior to departure, JETAA Minnesota hosts a Send Off Party. For new JETs it is a great way to get information.
