The fall has been a crazy productive time! National AJET has released its eZine, the AJET Connect, which will continue (alongside the Hyogo Times) to provide useful information, recipes, resources, and teaching materials to you. Also keep an eye open there for volunteer opportunities and travel deals that are coming up over the Winter Break due to our partnerships with the best NPOs and travel agencies this side of the sun!
National AJET has also been busy writing surveys for the bi-annual Opinion Exchange with CLAIR, and the 3 Ministries of Japan.
These surveys (taken by you) help National AJET write reports which we then present to the Ministries that run the JET Programme! These surveys are a great way for you to voice your concerns and needs to the people who make recommendations to your BOEs and other contracting organizations! In other words—they are important, as are your voices! Surveys are up now, and will run until late October. Make sure to take them while you can. You can always go to ajet.net for more information.
In other news, Halloween is just around the corner. Keep your calendars open! Block 6 and 7 will be hosting a joint Halloween Party at a club in Osaka on October 29th. Final information will be out soon and the prizes will be SWEET for Best Dressed, Scariest, Most Creative, and a few other categories. So start thinking of your outfit and keep an eye open on the Block 6 Facebook page to see how you can RSVP.
Hope to see you all there!
Your Friendly Block 6 Representative,
