JASP members and the community are invited to help shape the Society's programs and activities by becoming active volunteers. We also have internship opportunities for students. Please find information on our volunteer opportunities below and fill out this form sign up. We welcome your participation!
High school students from the Greater Pittsburgh region compete each March at the annual Japanese Speech Contest at the University of Pittsburgh. Volunteers are needed for registration, to escort students to judging, and staff the activity tables.
The Annual Dinner occurs every fall, and serves as a great opportunity to network with the JASP's corporate members. Volunteers are needed before the event to help with invitations and silent auction donations, and the night of the dinner for set up, registration, and raffle ticket sales.
This annual event brings together many prominent local businessmen and women though golf and raises funds for the JASP's educational programming. Volunteers are needed before the event to help with invitations, sponsorships, and raffle donations, and the day of the event for set up, registration, and raffle ticket sales.
Throughout the year we need volunteers in the office to help with various tasks including event preparation, poster design, filing and shredding, research, and the maintenance, repair, and organization of educational supplies. Office volunteering can be tailored to your skills and schedule during business hours.
The JASP accepts interns year-round. Internships can be tailored to meet the educational, professional, and personal interests of the student, for 10 or more hours per week. Please email us with your resume and cover letter describing your experience, as well as your educational and professional goals.
