Summer Work & Travel


Summer Work & Travel is a program started by the U.S. State Department for students from all over the world who want to visit America during their summer break. Not for those who just want to take a few pictures or videos, but for those who also want to earn some money.

Summer Work Travel gives you the chance to be more than a tourist, and we believe it’s the greatest college experience. As a result, as part of the Summer Work Travel program students with J1 visas are allowed to travel and work legally in the USA during their summer break.

As a participant, you will practice English while living and working with Americans and other J-1 Work and Travel participants. We take the time to make sure every student is ready for his or her cultural exchange experience, months ahead of departure. We walk them through the process with clear instruction and assistance for everything from obtaining a visa to travel advice.
