JET is now accepting applications for its 2017 Furusato Vision Project!
If you are interested in contributing to your ‘home-away-from-home’, your furusato in Japan, then this project is perfect. You can return to your former place of employment on JET, visit places you had strong connections with and reconnect with the community.
More importantly, you can develop and implement your own ‘Vision Plan’ that utilises the skills and connections you acquired after JET to make new contributions to your former community in areas such as Tourism Promotion, Economic Exchange, Educational Exchange, Culture & Arts Exchange, Grassroots Exchange, Career Support (of current JET participants etc.), or some other project to deepen your ties with your furusato and their ties with the world.
JET alumni whose former contracting organisations are in Western Japan are eligible to apply in 2017.
JET alumni whose former contracting organisations are in Eastern Japan may apply in 2018.
Application Period: Until Monday, 8 May, 2017 (by 9am, Japan Standard Time)
