Participating in our Work & Travel USA program is an exciting way to become part of a cultural exchange program in the U.S. For students who need job placement assistance, our Job Placement program is the best option. For others who may have found a job in the U.S. independently or are returning for a second season to a U.S. host employer, we can serve as your J-1 Visa sponsor.
