Visit from CLAIR Representatives

Posted by President


Representatives from CLAIR Visit Miami

David (FLJETAA Webmaster), Antonio (a newly returned JET alum), and Bahia (FLJETAA President) attended a dinner with representatives from CLAIR Tokyo, Mr. Shirasaki, Mr. Inoue, and Zachary Bass. The representatives from CLAIR stopped by Miami after visiting Jamaica, then headed back to Japan. They were really interested in what JET alumni in Florida do after JET and if it was related to Japan or if we got into that job or field because of our experience on JET. They were also really interested in whether or not JETAA and JET alumni maintain ties with Japanese people (teachers, students, etc) from our time on JET or if we maintain ties to sister cities of Florida cities.


2013 JET Program Application Deadline: November 26th, 2013

Posted by President

To all aspiring JETs: the application deadline is two weeks away! Make sure to get all your materials in to the JET Program Office at the Embassy of Japan in Washington DC by 5:30PM EST on November 26.
