Adults with a four-year degree may travel to Himeji, Japan for a one-year Phoenix Sister Cities Teach Abroad Program. A sense of adventure is required, but familiarity with the Japanese language is not! This is a unique international employment opportunity, and all college majors are welcome to apply.
Phoenix Sister Cities, in cooperation with our Sister City in Himeji, Japan, annually seeks applicants for assistant language teachers who fulfill 1-2 year contracts from September to August each school year.

All of our teachers come from various backgrounds and experiences. We encourage anyone interested who meets the requirements to apply. Living abroad and making a difference in a foreign country is a unique opportunity not available to everybody. Upon their return, teachers find that they have learned quite a bit from the very students they were teaching.
