Akita Orientation 2021

From Akita Wiki

2021 Akita Orientation was designed as a "rolling orientation" to provide for the different waves of new JETs coming to Akita throughout the year an orientation experience and resources to consult prior to and after their arrival in the prefecture.


A Google Classroom was set up for incoming JETs to use. This classroom contained video presentations on the many types of discussions and workshops that Akita Orientation had done prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. A link to the classroom was provided to all new JETs. If you are interested in viewing the materials, please email the PA team at akitamailinglist@gmail.com
