Welcome to JETAA Portland! We are an active chapter that supports all JET alumni. We warmly welcome any new members, whether you’ve recently returned from Japan or you were a JET 20 years ago. JETAA Portland is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and we cover the areas of Oregon, southern Idaho, and Vancouver, WA. We also have a sub-chapter in Eugene, Oregon.
We have many social, professional, and cultural events throughout the year, including an annual Shinnenkai and Bounenkai, a hanamikai, hiking, networking and career events, a golf tournament, and the famous Iron Chef Competition. We also partner with other Japan-related organizations for bigger events such as Mochitsuki. On a monthly basis we check out Japanese restaurants in the area, read and discuss Japan-related books for the book club, practice speaking Japanese at J-Kaiwa, and help each other with job searches in the Job Seekers group.

We welcome both JET alumni as well as FOJ (friends of JETAA). Become a member by registering on our JETAA Portland website or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
