Advance Your Career and Enhance Your School Through Teaching Abroad

Teacher Exchange

The Teacher Exchange Visitor Program is a nonimmgrant cultural exchange program which gives foreign teachers the opportunity to teach in pre-school immersion programs, primary and secondary schools in the United States.

Trainee Exchange

The Trainee Program is designed to allow foreign professionals to come to the United States to gain exposure to U.S. culture and to receive training in U.S. business practices in their chosen occupational field. 

Teacher Exchange

Through the Teacher Exchange Visitor Program qualified pre-school (language immersion), primary and secondary teachers sharpen their professional skills and participate in cross-cultural activities in schools and communities, and they return to their home country after the exchange to share their experiences and increased knowledge of the United States and the U.S. educational system. Schools that host visiting teachers report the achievement of new levels of diversity, professionalism, and social and cultural awareness.

Trainee Exchange

The Trainee Exchange sponsors residents of other countries with significant experience in their occupational field to receive additional training in the United States. The Trainee Program include the opportunity for interested foreign nationals to receive hands-on training through a structured, field-specific internship. The benefits of this program include enhanced skills and expertise of exchange visitors in their academic or occupational fields.
