What is it?
The J1 Work and Travel is a cultural exchange programme that allows college and university students who are enrolled as full-time students to go to the USA to share their culture and ideas through temporary work and travel opportunities.
Why should you participate?
The work and travel programme is a great opportunity for you to visit the US, meet new people, learn about the American culture and also share your culture! It is a life-changing programme, causing you to view things differently and to realise there is much more to life. On this programme, you will be working with Americans, and people from all around the world! You would be experiencing different cultures all in one place. If travelling is something that you have always dreamed of doing or something that you have done many times before and loved, then this is the perfect programme for you!
