We are launching Come On Out – Japan’s 7th Annual Global English Camp Summer Internship Program and extending our invitation to top Universities and Japanese high school students for a cross-cultural learning experience. Learn more at our November Info Sessions – sign up for an info session here – or at future sessions, details of which will be released via our newsletter.
We are currently seeking university students and recent graduates with native level English skills who are passionate about Japanese culture, gaining global experience, and mentoring others. They will be offered the opportunity to come to Japan for five weeks from mid-July to late August, 2022. Although this is an unpaid internship, the sponsor is providing certain expenses for each intern who participates in the six-week program. Airfare, lodging, meals, and transportation subsidies will be provided. The program also offers optional Japanese language classes, Japanese cultural workshops, field trips and an overnight excursion. These additional opportunities are all designed to add cultural enrichment to your summer abroad experience. In the event that travel to Japan is not possible due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will hold the event virtually and interns will be compensated monetarily (as we did in 2020).
This program is different from any other traditional teaching position in Japan. Interns will facilitate English conversations with Japanese high school students on a variety of relevant global topics ranging from discussing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to their personal life missions. Interns will be able to extend mentorship to new students each week as well as form lifelong connections with their fellow interns inside and outside the classroom.
We do not have any Japanese fluency requirements. Come On Out – Japan accepts undergraduates, graduates and recently graduated students as well.
Applications are now open atwww.comeonoutjapan.com! If you have additional questions regarding the program, please contact Come on Out – Japan directly at email@example.com or via the inquiry tab on our website. For more specific information, please check out the following important links.

After having to cancel NELP in 2020, it was so good to be back in the woods with our students last spring—and they were just thrilled to have the experience of living and learning (and climbing mountains!) together in such an intimate setting after a year of online classes. We’re not yet sure what NELP 2022 will look like exactly, but we learned in 2021 how to do the program with modifications allowing us to accommodate a variety of circumstances, and so our planning for this spring is running at full steam—though we’re anticipate minimal changes to the program in 2022.
If you’d like to learn more about NELP, please join us for the Mass Meeting, where the previous year’s NELP participants come out to describe the program to those who might be interested in applying; they do a much better job than a flyer or the website can of painting a picture of what life at NELP is like, and it’s by far the most helpful way for prospective students to figure out whether the program is right for them. – Aric Knuth, Director, NELP
