Over 34,000 American college graduates are alumni of the JET Programme, and there are more than 65,000 JET alumni worldwide. Since its inception in 1987, JETs have lived and worked in every prefecture throughout Japan, teaching English and promoting mutual understanding and friendship between the U.S. and their host communities. There are 19 individual chapters across the country offering programs and events for alumni, their families, and their communities.
