College Work and Travel

The purpose of this program is to provide international college students with opportunities to interact with U.S. citizens, experience U.S. culture while sharing their own cultures with Americans, travel in the United States, and work in jobs that require minimal training and are seasonal or temporary.

Participants earn funds to help defray a portion of their expenses. The Exchange Visitors Program helps strengthen the ties in which unite us with other nations by demonstrating the educational and cultural interests, developments, and achievements of the people of the United States and other nations.

Explore the vast country that is the United States while getting highly valued international work experience. Imagine a once in a lifetime opportunity to work and travel in America while making friends and memories. The Work and Travel program gives​ you this and so much more.

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”
