JETAADC and the Embassy of Japan’s New Education Program

posted in: Volunteer | 0

We are pleased to announce a call for volunteers for the Ambassador of Japan’s new education program benefiting area elementary, junior high, and high schools.

Working with JETAADC, the Ambassador wishes to establish a network of volunteers who can visit local schools and discuss their experiences in Japan through photos, videos, games, and other props.

The main focus of these presentations will be life at a Japanese school, but they will vary from person to person.

The goal is to begin presentations in the Fall of 2010 and include all interested schools in the JETAADC area, including the Baltimore Region, Annapolis and the Eastern Shore, Richmond and other points South, and even West Virginia.  So regardless of your distance from D.C., please respond if you are interested.

Each presenter will receive be reimbursed for his or her time and travel.

If you are interested, please respond to this e-mail with the following information.  We will be following up over the summer:

Additionally, we are still undecided about a name for this program, so feel free to include your suggestion in your response.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
