Hello fellow JETs! It’s been quite cold recently, but we are only a bit more than a month away from spring, so let’s hang in there!
If you are interested in volunteering for the JET community, here are two opportunities you can consider:
Fukuoka JET Orientation Committee (FJOC) 2017 Recruitment
The Fukuoka JET Orientation Committee (FJOC) is currently recruiting enthusiastic reappointing JETs to serve as committee member for Orientation, provisionally scheduled for August 7th or 9th, 2017. As a member, you will have the opportunity to plan, organize, and implement one of the largest events for JETs in Fukuoka.
PSG Volunteer Recruitment 2017 – 2018
The AJET Peer Support Group is recruiting volunteers for the 2017 – 2018 JET year! Applications will be open from February 13, 2017 to March 13, 2017.
Hello JETs! It’s gotten really windy and cold lately so I hope you are all staying warm.
For some of you who are turning into fourth or fifth year JETs, you will have to renew your period of stay. You can do so as early as up to 3 months before it expires, and we highly recommend you to not delay doing so.
You will need to renew your period of stay at the Fukuoka Regional Immigration Bureau Office. It was originally located in the Fukuoka Airport but has relocated to the following address on December 19, 2016:
Fukuoka Legal Affairs Government Complex
No. 1 3-5-25 Maizuru, Chuo-ku, Fukuoka
New telephone no. : 092-717-5420
