NAJOM is 100% a volunteer organization and depends on the kind support of its members. If you have a few hours a month, you can put your skills to work for the NAJOM community. Currently, we are looking for help in the following areas:

Editing/proofreading: In either English or Japanese. 

Translation: Japanese to English or English to Japanese.

Layout/design: In English and Japanese. We use Adobe InDesign and simple preset guidelines. Experience would be an asset, but training can be provided.

Web/Social media presence: Our existing website is very simple. We need experienced help and a small amount of time to maintain or improve it.

Representation in Japan: We need a ‘voice’ on the ground in Japan (and other countries), to increase readership and participation. Existing seeds can be sewn and nourished.

NAJOM Ambassadors: To represent/increase awareness of NAJOM at seminars and conferences (this might involve asking instructors for a few minutes to introduce the journal or space to set up a small display).

Advertising: Identifying and communicating with potential advertisers.

Accounting: To meet obligations as a non-profit society.

Fundraising: In support of NAJOM's key projects such as Moxafrica, research, and international relief.
