The Japan Exchange and Teaching Program began in 1987 as a way to improve exposure to international culture and language throughout Japan. Since then, thousands of young university graduates from around the world have participated on the JET Program.
With its successful history and its support from the Japanese government, the JET Program remains one of the leading language and cultural exchange programs in the world.
Many JETs continue to promote intercultural and international awareness in their homes and careers long after completing the JET Program. Through the efforts of international JET Alumni Association groups, JETs are able to maintain their relationships not only with the program, but also with fellow former and future JET participants.
The United States of America contributes over half of all JET participants currently in Japan.
