Our apologies as we do some renovations on this page. We hope to make it easier to find what activities JETAA Wellington participates in, and should have it ready soon! In the meantime, you can view our past activities in the Archive or see the latest news in the Updates section.
What Does JETAA Wellington Do?
Nearly every month, JETAA Wellington organises and facilitates events for JET Programme alumni to get together and reconnect to one another and their Japan experience. In addition to these annual events, we also sponsor a monthly “JKaiWa” Japanese conversation class, arrange dinners and get-togethers throughout the year, and support Japanese cultural events by the Embassy of Japan and other Japan-focused groups.
