Work and Travel

Every year thousands of young people travel to the USA to experience life and work in another country. The USA attracts many students and young professionals who wish to enhance their skills, gain relevant career experience or just want to spend some time working and living in another country. There are a multitude of work experience placements in the USA for young people and the J1 visa allows them to work and travel in America.

The work and travel programs are available to students who are currently enrolled at university and for professionals who have graduated and are now working or for professionals who have at least 5 years of work experience in their chosen field. The different program options will allow you to choose a program that suits your needs and will allow you to live in the USA and gain the experience that you desire.
