The Auckland JET Alumni Association (Auckland JETAA) was founded in 1998 as an organisation for past and current members of the Japan Government JET Programme. It is run by an executive committee and currently has about 400 members in its database. As one of several JET Alumni associations in New Zealand, Auckland JETAA covers the top half of the North Island.

Auckland JETAA’s primary purpose is to promote the JET programme and to help boost awareness of Japan in the greater Auckland region. Auckland JETAA works closely with the local Japanese consulate to help select and prepare new JET participants for their time in Japan. We also have long standing relationships with the Japan Society (nihonjinkai), the New Zealand Japan Society of Auckland (NZJS) , the Auckland City Council and other Japan related organisations in Auckland and throughout New Zealand.

We hold monthly committee meetings, social events and are always looking for ways to promote the New Zealand-Japan relationship.

Please take the time to look through our website for more information about who we are, what we do, and links to social media sites. Information on the JET programme can be found here.
