The United States JET Alumni Association (USJETAA) is an non-profit umbrella organization for the various regional sub-chapters within the United States. The mission of the USJETAA is to provide support and resources to Japan Exchange and Teaching Program (JET) alumni chapters and individual JET alumni throughout the United States in order to strengthen the capacity of the JETAA network, enabling alumni to contribute to the greater U.S.-Japan relationship and ‘bring Japan home’ by fostering education and understanding of Japanese culture in the United States.
