The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme aims to promote grass roots internationalisation at the local level by inviting young overseas graduates to assist in international exchange and foreign language education in local governments, boards of education and elementary, junior and senior high schools throughout Japan. It seeks to foster ties between Japanese citizens (mainly youth) and JET participants at the person-to-person level.
JET participants are placed in contracting organizations throughout Japan. Contracting organizations consist of 47 prefectural and 20 designated city governments, individual city, town and village governments, and some private schools.
