Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering with JETAASC is a great way to use the JET network to help yourself grow personally and professionally. Giving back to Japan through sister city partnerships & community revitalization initiatives, meet and work with your fellow JET alumni through social & career development events, or helping out with JET Program recruiting & onboarding are just some of the ways you can get involved. Impact metrics for an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization also look great on your resume!


Here are the volunteer opportunities that we have available.

Area Representative

Area Representatives includes individuals representing a geographic area, such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, and Arizona. Area representatives organize events in their area and also serve as a local point of contact for new members in the area or those who wish to reconnect. They work closely with the officers to plan, promote, assist with, and attend other activities and events as well. Large or high population density areas may have more than one Area Representative. Area Representatives should already have some experience with JETAASC or another JETAA chapter, but individuals new to the JETAA community will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Event Coordinator

Event Coordinators serve as leads for specific events or activities. Area Representatives may also function as Event Coordinators at times, but Event Coordinators by themselves are just involved with the specific event they are running, and do not serve as a main point of contact for their area. This is an ideal role for those who want to be involved and plan / run events, but can’t take on the greater extended time commitment of an Area Representative. Event Coordinators’ attendance at the regular officer meetings is optional, except when their event or activity is on the agenda.

Content Contributor

Content Contributors create content (writing, photography, video, graphic design, etc) and resources for JETAASC’s website, blog, newsletter, and social media or may serve as facilitators, speakers, or panelists. This is a great opportunity for creative individuals to get involved and develop content that they want to contribute to the JET community. Contributors’ attendance at the regular officer meetings is optional, except when their project is on the agenda.
