HEC | The Hokkaido English Challenge

Not convinced HAJET is amazing and does tons of great things? Here’s a good one for ya: The Hokkaido English Challenge, or HEC for short! A brief blurb here won’t do it justice, but here’s a few things about HEC that make it so great:

  • Your student can go on a camping trip with other kids from around Hokkaido and your fellow ALTs for a super immersive English experience.
  • Your student has a good chance of earning an all-expenses-paid study abroad trip to an English speaking country of their choice!
  • Study abroad trip or no, your student will come home with lifelong friends and memories.
  • And you can make those friends and memories, too, by volunteering for HEC Camp!
