Come on Out Japan - Information Session

Information Session | November 30 | 4-6 p.m. | 54 Barrows Hall

 Center for Japanese Studies (CJS)

Attention students and recent graduates!

The 5th Annual Come on Out-Japan Summer Internship Program is launching and they are extending an invitation to top Universities and Japanese high school students for a cross-cultural learning experience. They will be on campus Friday, November 30 at Barrows Hall, Room 54 from 4 - 6 pm and hope to see you there! See the Facebook Event pages for further details.

They are currently seeking University students and recent graduates with native level English skills, who would be interested in coming to Japan for 6 weeks from mid-July to late August, 2019. Although this is an unpaid internship, the sponsor is providing certain expenses for each intern who participates in the six-week program. In addition to airfare, lodging, meal and transportation subsidies, the program offers optional Japanese language classes, field trips, dinner/cooking nights and at least one overnight trip. These additional opportunities are all designed to add cultural enrichment to your summer abroad experience.

This program is truly different from any other traditional teaching positions in Japan. Interns will facilitate English conversations with Japanese high school students on a variety of relevant global topics ranging from discussing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to finding their personal life missions. As mentors, interns will truly impact new students each week as well as form lifelong connections with their fellow interns.

There are no Japanese fluency requirements and they accept undergraduate, graduate and recent graduate students.
