Work and Travel


A summer program designed for first to third year college students of any course who want to experience a productive summer  the US from March to June, while earning a little allowance at the same time. Various work experiences and interactions with other program participants from other countries help enrich the students' cultural learning. It enables them to learn valuable lessons of independence, which help them develop better character.


Participants may be assigned to work programs that are not necessarily in line with their chosen career paths, just to try something new or acquire a different skill. Destinations and location of positions vary depending on the time of year. Academic credits may be requested for the acquired on-the-job training experience. After their program concludes, students have an extra 30 days for travelling to explore their host country as they please.
