Young Professionals

Find out more about getting involved through out event postings on the JAST Young Professionals Facebook page:


The JAST YP group was founded in 2011 with the purpose of providing young professionals who are interested in US-Japan relations and international exchange opportunities with an organization to meet their needs. It is targeted primarily to those who are new to or developing their careers at Japan-related international companies in the Nashville (Middle TN) area. The JAST YP group will provide social and networking opportunities with other young professionals and help enhance members' understanding of Japanese and American culture.


We hold monthly meet-ups such as happy hours and meishi exchanges, sushi & sake tastings, holiday events, music & sports events, and more. We also host community & volunteer activities, cultural lectures, Japanese/English conversation classes, and professional development opportunities like business seminars and leadership opportunities. Also, as a member of JAST, Young Professionals members will be invited to the JAST Annual Membership Meeting and Golf Tournament.


If you are interested in being a part of this dynamic new group, we will be happy to hear from you and provide more information. Contact JAST YP at
