CSB is designated by the United States Department of State as a sponsor of the J-1 Summer Work Travel Program (SWT). The SWT Program is a cultural exchange visitor program. The purpose is to provide foreign full-time university students, the opportunity to interact with United States citizens, experience the United States culture while sharing their own culture with Americans they meet, travel in the United States and work in jobs that require minimal training and are seasonal or temporary, in order to earn funds to help cover a part of their expenses.

The participants are authorized to join the program for up to a maximum of 4 (four) months, within the limits of their official long break between academic years, also known as the summer vacation. Extensions of program participation are not permitted.

 

Explore the United States as an exchange visitor!
All participants will have the unique, yet dynamic opportunity to experience the daily life in the United States by embracing its tradition, history and culture through short-term work opportunities, an experience that is very different from that of a tourist. CSB team is devoted to help start and unfold an American summer adventure: one dream at the time.

Join the global network as a host employer!
The program is also open to hundreds United States based businesses who wish to offer a unique answer to their seasonal or peak staffing needs, while embracing workplace diversity. The SWT Program matches highly motivated international university students eager to become a part of an American host site team, with businesses across the United States who have the ability to hire extra staff for their peak load and enrich their work environment.

At-a-glance

Participants obtain the J-1 visa from the US Consulate in their home country, based on specific documentation that also includes Form DS-2019 (Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) Status), which identifies CSB as the sponsor, it defines the purpose of the program and it states the program period, which is the time the participant can legally live, work and travel in the United States.

The program promotes mutual global understanding through cultural exchanges. All participants are expected to return to their home country upon completion of their program in order to share their exchange experiences.
