This summer, InterExchange host employers welcomed Work & Travel USA program participants with a great variety of cultural events and celebrations. These acts of kindness helped participants feel welcome in their American host communities and we are very happy to share some of the summer's highlights.

"We have introduced the participants to a very active group of volunteers, York Seasonal Workers and York Diversity Group. YSW has a Facebook page. They offer each student a friend to do fun things with (trips, shopping, sightseeing etc)."

"This was the first trip we took with our student employees from Lithuania to drive along the scenic New Hampshire seacoast, visit the Fort Constitution Historic Site in New Castle, and then on to a sidewalk cafe for some lunch & sightseeing in the beautiful seacoast community of Portsmouth." said Deb & Skip Windemiller, D.W.'s Oceanside Inn.
