Work and Travel USA History

Work and Travel USA started out as a travel and tourism program. It was founded in the 60s by the US State Department as part of a series of programs designed especially for foreigners to have a taste of the infamous American lifestyle.

Young people from all over the world were attracted by the idea of traveling, earning money and experiencing a different culture. One of the most interesting aspects for participants is the ability to share cultural elements and values and to make new friends.

Designed as a cultural exchange program for students, Work and Travel USA is the perfect opportunity to travel, to meet new people and experience different cultures and so, creating an unforgettable experience.
