The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program


 What is JET?

The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program is one of the largest exchange programs in the world which aims to promote grass roots internationalization at the local level by inviting young overseas graduates to assist in international exchange and foreign language education in local governments, boards of education and elementary, junior and senior high schools throughout Japan. It seeks to foster ties between Japanese citizens (mainly youth) and JET participants at the person-to-person level.
