As we navigate opportunities across Asia, we emphasize the importance of understanding and appreciating the distinct narratives and experiences of the BIPOC community. Whether it's teaching, cultural immersion, or volunteering, we ensure that people of color not only have a seat at the table but are also integral to our mission's success.

For those in the LGBTQIA+ community seeking teaching, cultural immersion, or volunteering roles: know that The Fewer Things stands with you

Neurodivergent Support

At The Fewer Things, we embrace the unique insights and contributions of neurodivergent individuals.

Ethical Impact

At The Fewer Things, our approach to ethical programming is deeply rooted in mutual respect and reciprocity.

ALT Life In Japan

Japan is a wonderful place for people new to the field of education and teaching! Typical working hours are roughly 40 hours per week. The pay could be better, but it is enough to live on. The benefits/ insurance are wonderful! Japan has a large expat community, so it's easy to find like minded friends! The country is extremely safe and welcoming. Public transportation is amazing here, the country is so accessible even if you are in a non-driving position. Be prepared to try new foods, see new sights, and have an adventure of a lifetime!
