Message from Guy Healy: 

Many years ago when we started bringing American students to Japan for our programs, I never expected the huge impact the experience would have on so many of their lives.  I was much more focused on the impact their
work as counselors and interns would have on young Japanese lives.  I was most surprised by how many decided that they wanted to come back to Japan to teach English.
More than 300 became teachers in Japan and many others did the same in both China and South Korea.  More than 200 were selected by the popular JET Program. 
There are many, many teaching opportunities in Asia but each year the competition for those jobs becomes more intense.  This internship will be a life-impacting experience for all but has been especially designed to utilize our long history and connections with both public and private schools in Japan to put our interns at the front of the line when applying for teaching jobs.
