Take the First Step for Your Students

NP:J teachers provide the opportunity of a lifetime to their students. They also greatly further Laurasian Institution's mission—expanding appreciation for Japan and its people, culture, and history. For both of these reasons, we are very glad that you're ready to get started!

Before Beginning Application

Prior to beginning your teacher application, please prepare the following items:

  • A brief self-introduction (Japanese is preferred but not required)
  • A message to your future host family (Japanese is preferred but not required)
  • A recent photo of yourself along with another photo with friends or family

After Completing Application

After submitting your teacher or chaperone application, take a moment to complete the Lead Teacher Letter of Understanding (or Chaperone Letter of Understanding in the case of an additional chaperone). Should you have any questions as you get started, please do not hesitate to call (800.721.7474) or email us at npj[at]npjapan[dot]org.

Special Note about Passports

All program applicants are advised to obtain a valid passport as soon as possible. The deadline to submit a valid copy of your passport to Laurasian Institution is March 15. After this date, a $50 fee will be assessed.
