2020 Survival Series is Here!

Updated: Jun 20, 2020

Dear 2020 Outgoing JETs,

Congratulations on your acceptance into the JET Program! You are in for an incredible journey and the experience of a lifetime.

We're sure you have a gazillion things running around in your minds right now, and we're here to help! To support our future alumni members, JETAA Chicago organizes a variety of events and initiatives to help Outgoing JETs prepare for their time in Japan.

Take a look at our Outgoing JETs Resources page for a variety of survival guides, videos, and other useful information. It's currently under construction, but we'll be updating it with new resources regularly.

If you're looking for more face-to-face interaction, we've got a bunch of events scheduled throughout the summer leading up to your departure! Meet up with other Outgoing JETs and Alumni Mentors and get excited for your journey to come!
