Come On Out Japan Info Session – Northwestern University on 11/9


Attention students and recent graduates!

We are launching the 4th Annual Come on Out-Japan Summer Internship Program and extending our invitation to top Universities and Japanese high school students for a cross-cultural learning experience. We will be on campus Thursday, November 9th at Kresge Hall Room 2440 from 6-8PM, and hope to see you there! See the Facebook Event page for further details:


We 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, 2018.  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. Outside of the class, interns will have space in their schedule to fulfill their personal goals and cultural exploration.

We do not have any Japanese fluency requirements and accept undergraduate, graduate and recent graduate students.

See links below for more information. If you have additional questions regarding the program, please contact Come on Out-Japan directly or via our inquiry tab on our website. You can find our application at www.comeonoutjapan.com!
