About the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program
The JET Program is the government of Japan’s most successful exchange program, sending over 70,000 participants to Japan since 1987 to serve as Assistant Language Teachers and Coordinators for International Relations. The program aims to enhance English language education at the primary and secondary school levels, and promote international exchange by fostering ties at the grassroots level between Japanese and foreign youth.
Under the supervision of the Public Affairs Section diplomats, the Program Coordinator will be responsible for coordinating the screening process for applications for all U.S. candidates, recruitment and interviewing of applicants in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area, and preparing successful candidates for departure. This position will also involve liaising with the JET Alumni Association of Washington, D.C. and assisting with other projects within the Public Affairs diplomats’ portfolio as necessary.
