YESS Sponsor – Yokosuka Spouse

Thank you for wanting to join the YESS team.  If you care, you are the right person for the job!

YESS offers newcomers and sponsors the opportunity to connect online prior to the newcomer’s arrival in Japan as well as after. YESS Sponsors work from home to act as greeters on YESS electronic media outlets. They may answer questions and point newcomers to existing online relocation information sources.

 Once a Newcomer has arrived, YESS Sponsors provide a more personal and local connection to Yokosuka.  They may answer questions, point newcomers to existing online and local relocation information sources, and even set up an in-person meeting once the newcomer has arrived.

Once your contact information is received, a Sponsor Coordinator will contact you via email or phone to confirm your contact information and share additional Sponsor resources.  Matching you with a newcomer may not be immediate.  We match based on family composition and specific need requests.  In the meantime, it is always good to visit the YESS Facebook Page and familiarize yourself with our resources.

Alternatively, you may fill out the YESS Sponsor Information Form and save the file to your computer. Then, email with the subject line “Sponsor – your name ” – Remember to attach your form!

If you have any comments or questions about the process, please email!
