About the Program


What is our Work & Travel Program?


Our Work & Travel Program provides you with an opportunity to live and work in the United States during your summer vacation to experience United States culture.


What's included in the price? 


Our program fee includes the following: 


  • Job placement

  • Work permit

  • Medical insurance 

  • Visa document processing (where applicable)

  • Cultural Activities

  • 24/7 emergency hotline 


Is this program right for me?


To take part in our 4-month Work & Travel program you must be:


  • Enrolled in and actively pursuing a degree or other full-time course of study at an accredited college or university outside the United States

  • Have successfully completed at least one semester of study

  • Pre-placed in a job prior to entry unless you come from a visa waiver country

  • Sufficiently proficient in English to successfully interact in an English-speaking environment


What about my prospective employer, are they right for me?


Our partner employers are all vetted by our sponsors who operate under the auspices of the US Government Department of State.


This means is that:


  • The job offer and description are accurate

  • You will receive the number of hours of paid employment per week identified on the job offer

  • Should you work overtime you will be paid for overtime worked in accordance with applicable state or federal law


What kind of job can I expect to get? 



You mentioned a sponsor, what is that?


A J-1 visa program sponsor is a non-profit organisation that provides safe and secure J-1 visa programs in the United States. They are responsible for a number of things including your work permit, insurance and eligibility of our employer partners. They have authorisation from the United States government to do this – so they are a pretty big deal. Sponsors work with specialist companies like us, to make sure they receive enough exchange visitors to meet the stated goals of the J-1 visa program.
