What is Work and Travel

 

 

 

An Overview to Work and Travel

 

VISIONPH’s J-1 Work and Travel Program is a US State Department Exchange Program offered to university students who desire to experience other cultures while having the opportunity to earn during their stay abroad. Participants are given employment opportunities in different parts of the United States during summer break. It is through Work and Travel experience that students get the chance to showcase their respective culture and traditions to locals and fellow international exchange students.

 

Students approved for the Work and Travel program are identified as legally employed and are given up to four months of employment under various companies. Lastly, the Work and Travel program features a 30-day grace period, which gives students the chance to extend up to a month after employment, thus enabling them to explore the rest of the country.
