The Consulate-General of Japan in Hagåtña, invites qualified individuals residing in Guam or the CNMI interested in The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program to apply online and represent the United States and Guam/CNMI as cultural ambassadors to Japan.
The JET Program seeks participants who are adaptable, outgoing, and who have a deep interest in Japan. Each fall, about 4,000-5,000 apply and about 1,000 are selected to represent the U.S and depart for Japan the following summer.
This year with the goal of increasing JET participants from Guam and the CNMI, ONLY those applicants residing in Guam or the CNMI will be invited to the interviews at the Consulate-General of Japan in February 2022. Therefore, those interested and qualified individuals residing in Guam or the CNMI are highly encouraged to apply to the JET Program.
Most JET Program participants (90%) serve as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) and are engaged in language instruction in public and private schools located in cities, towns, and villages throughout Japan. Japanese proficiency is not required for ALTs.
Some work as Coordinators for International Relations (CIRs) engaged in internationalization activities and interpretations/translations and are placed in administrative offices of local authorities or related organizations. This position requires a high-degree of Japanese fluency.
