Join us for a very special JETAA virtual event as we swap stories and amazing memories from our time on the JET Program. Whether it's been a year, a decade, or longer since you've been to Japan, come relive those only-in-Japan moments with your JETAA friends! This will be an informal event with different speakers sharing short, 5-min stories of their most memorable experiences on JET.
Our theme for this storytelling event is... Touchdown in Tokyo: Your First Week on the JET Program!
From panic packing to Tokyo orientation, arriving at your placement, and settling into your new life on the the other side of the planet, we'll relive the moments that made us laugh, cry, cringe, and form a very special bond with our home-away-from-home.

Ongoing | JETAA Mid-South wants YOU for our Steering Committee!
Most of us are finding that we have a bit of spare time these days as we shelter at home and stay socially distant. Why not spend some of that time hanging out and making plans with your JETAA Mid-South friends!

Above all, remember that JETAA Mid-South is laid-back - so we're not expecting our Steering Committee to change the world. We're a small community focused on keeping our community healthy and having fun in the process.
