The JET Alumni Association of Northern California (JETAANC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization consisting of former participants of the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program who now live in Northern California or Nevada. The all-volunteer organization serves as a network and resource for our alumni, and provides assistance to the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco for a wide range of initiatives, including local U.S.-Japan exchange activities and recruitment and orientation for the JET Program. We coordinate many activities throughout the year that support our members and the continuing mission of the JET Program to foster grassroots exchange between the U.S. and Japan. With over 1,100 active members, JETAANC is one of the largest and most active JET alumni chapters in the world.
