Florida JETAA is the local chapter for the Japan Exchange & Teaching Program’s Alumni Association serving the entire state of Florida. Our purpose is to aid JET alumni in transitioning into their post-JET lives and help them maintain their connection with Japan and the JET Program. We aim to maintain and build upon the spirit of community involvement and global awareness many JETs develop in Japan and redirect that attention to the state of Florida. We also strive to connect JET alumni with members of the Japanese community in Florida and support the Japanese Consulate in recruiting a new generation of JETs.
Florida JETAA is affiliated with the Consulate General of Japan in Miami. There is one official subchapter in Tampa and there are Regional Representatives located throughout the state. Florida JETAA maintains an active web presence via Facebook, Twitter, and our website to best serve our spread out constituents.
