Work and Travel
The Work&Travel is a program that allows students from all over the world to work in the US for 3 months and then travel the US for another month. It’s a very interesting experience for students because they get to work alongside US citizens and learn the American culture as well as teach their culture to Americans and other nationalities who are experiencing the same program. This is one of the best ways to discover America and a great opportunity to earn back the money spent on this program.
