The Association for Japan Exchange and Teaching
The Association for Japan Exchange and Teaching (AJET) is a volunteer organisation of JET Programme participants. AJET serves the JET community by building support networks, organising useful information, and offering resources to enhance the lives of the Programme participants in Japan and abroad. It maintains a peer support service (AJET PSG) and an online magazine (Connect Magazine), and it voices the opinions and concerns of JETs to CLAIR and the Japanese government ministries that manage the JET Programme.
