The BridgeUSA Exchange Visitor Program for J-1 Trainees allows 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. The programs range in duration, up to 18 months. Trainees must have a confirmed U.S. Host Organization willing to provide the training experience while Teachers Council serves as your J-1 visa sponsor.
If you are a foreign trainee with a confirmed host organization and in need of a J-1 visa sponsorship, please submit a J-1 Trainee Initial Eligibility Form.
If you are a foreign trainee without a host organization and would like to take advantage of our placement program, then please visit our Placement Program page for more information.
If you are a US host organization in need of a Trainee or in need of sponsorship for a J-1 Trainee, please reference our For Organizations page for more information.
We are also available via email email@example.com for any questions you may have.
Please note we are designated by the US Department of State to sponsor J-1 Trainee Visas in the following three occupational categories:
- Education, Social Sciences, Library Science, Counseling and Social Services
- Hospitality and Tourism
- Management, Business, Commerce and Finance
