Join us for another virtual Halloween Party on October 24th, 2-4 pm CST!

Let's enjoy some crafts, games, and general hilarity!

We'll once again be conducting a Halloween origami workshop! We're going to try a few new patterns this year ;) All you’ll need for the craft is a few sheets of square paper. Don’t worry if you don’t have any origami paper; you can make it from recycled paper easily! How to guide - click here.

It's a well-known fact that, if you have a pet, you must introduce them in the Zoom conference. As long as we're showing off our furry (or feathered, or scaled...) friends, why not deck them out in some festive wear? It's the first JETAA Pet Costume Contest!


After fawning over our cute beasties, we'll enjoy some Halloween-themed party games and trivia! This year's trivia theme is based on Japanese yokai ;)

Sign up here!

* This event is for JET alumni, their families, and friends!
