Yamanashi Prefecture has two Prefectural Advisors (PAs). One is exclusively for SHS ALTs, whereas the other is for ES/JHS as well as private high schools. In order to strengthen the employer-employee relationship and to facilitate further utilisation of JET participants, the main roles of a PA include the provision of information, organization of various seminars and orientations, and responding to inquiries regarding work as well as daily life. You can find their contact info below.
