Pre-Departure Orientation 2019

By admin

Remember how you felt in the months before leaving to start your new life in Japan? The stress nightmares about choosing the perfect omiyage, the endless scrolling through JET forums? Impart your sagely JET alum wisdom to these tender young shoots, and help send them off to their JET career smoothly at the Pre-Departure Orientation.

When: Saturday, June 22nd
Where:  Mark Spencer Hotel (409 SW 11th Ave)

We need volunteers for the following break-out sessions:

  • appearance (2 volunteers needed)
  • relationships
  • sex
  • health
  • non-dominant culture

You don’t have to be an expert, just draw on your personal experience on JET! If you’re interested in volunteering to help for one of these sessions, please e-mail the JETAA Portland officers.

We also need two volunteers for check-in at the desk. Please e-mail Anna Schneider if you are interested.
