American Businesses Advocate for Work & Travel in DC

Each year, seasonal businesses around the country host international students participating in our Work & Travel USA program. Our host employers understand the importance of these students to their businesses, their communities, and our country. The Work & Travel program both strengthens the U.S. economy and supports U.S. national security and diplomacy.

To deliver this message, a group of our host employers went up to Capitol Hill during InterExchange’s inaugural Host Advocacy Forum. On January 16 and 17, host employers from six states participated in 18 meetings with Members of Congress and their staff. They delivered a strong message that the Work & Travel program is good for Americans and great for America.
