Work & Intern Exchanges

Greenheart Exchange is designated by the U.S. Department of State for the J-1 Summer Work Travel and J-1 Intern & Trainee programs.

The Summer Work Travel program invites university students from around the world to the United States over their summer break to live and work in seasonal positions. Program participants will improve their English, make new friends, and develop invaluable life skills.

The J-1 Intern/Trainee program invites university students, recent graduates, and young professionals from around the world to the United States to develop professional skills in their field of study or work. Greenheart Exchange is still accepting applications for the 2015 J-1 Trainee Program. Please continue to check back for updates regarding the opening of the 2016 J-1 Internship Program.
