Learn more at an info session this Friday, November 20 (10 AM PST Session & 6 PM PST Session), or at future events – to be released via our newsletter.

We are currently seeking university students and recent graduates with native level English skills who are passionate about Japanese culture, gaining global experience, and mentoring others. They will be offered the opportunity to come to Japan for five weeks from mid-July to late August, 2021. Although this is an unpaid internship, the sponsor is providing certain expenses for each intern who participates in the six-week program. Airfare, lodging, meal and transportation subsidies will be provided. The program also offers optional Japanese language classes, field trips and an overnight trip. These additional opportunities are all designed to add cultural enrichment to your summer abroad experience.

This program is vastly different from any other traditional teaching position in Japan. Interns will facilitate English conversations with Japanese high school students on a variety of relevant global topics ranging from discussing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to  their personal life missions. Interns will be able to extend mentorship to new students each week as well as form lifelong connections with their fellow interns inside and outside the classroom.
