USJETAA (United States Japan Exchange & Teaching Programme Alumni Association)

USJETAA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization established to support the network of JET alumni and JETAA chapters in the U.S. and their many activities connecting the U.S. and Japan. There are 19 individual chapters across the country offering programs and events for alumni, their families and their communities.

The mission of the United States JETAA (USJETAA) is to provide support and resources to Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET) alumni chapters and individual JET alumni throughout the United States in order to strengthen the capacity of the JETAA network, enabling alumni to contribute to the greater U.S.-Japan relationship and ‘bring Japan home’ by fostering education and understanding of Japanese culture in the United States.

CULCON was instrumental in “incubating” USJETAA, which is now a self-sustaining not-for-profit organization.
