TELL Japan


TELL is excited to start an official partnership with AJET (The Association for Japan Exchange and Teaching)! Through its community partnership scheme, AJET aims to connect the JET community with beneficial, stimulating and meaningful volunteer work and fundraising opportunities throughout Japan. During Suicide Awareness Month (this March), we have already worked with JETs nationwide to raise awareness about this MOST preventable cause of death. As well as providing JETs the chance to volunteer with us, we hope that this partnership will enable us to better support the thousands of JETs in Japan, and enable them to help shatter the stigma around mental health in their local communities.
