VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for Portland JET Pre-Departure Orientation – June 24th

By admin

Remember how you felt in the months before leaving to start your new life in Japan? The stress nightmares about choosing the perfect omiyage, the endless scrolling through JET forums? Impart your sagely JET alum wisdom to these tender young shoots, and help send them off to their JET career smoothly at the Pre-Departure Orientation.
When: 8:00am – 12:30pm
Where: Mark Spencer Hotel (409 SW 11th Ave)
We need volunteers to give presentations on the following topics:
  • packing for life in Japan
  • office etiquette
  • team-teaching
You don’t have to be an expert, just draw on your personal experience on JET! If you’re interested in volunteering to give one of these presentations, please e-mail: officers@jetaaportland.com.
We also need volunteers to check guests in at the desk, and to run breakout “rap” sessions with new JETs where they can ask more specific questions.
If you’re interested in helping out with one of these positions, please e-mail: Matt Turner.
