Australia and New Zealand 12-Month Work & Travel Program

Work and Travel in the US for an Entire Year!

On this program, exchange visitors from Australia and New Zealand have the opportunity to gain international cultural exposure and embark on an EPIC work and travel experience for up to 12 months in the US.

This is a fantastic opportunity for current students and recent graduates who want to gain valuable international work experience, explore the US, and enrich themselves in American culture.

The job possibilities are endless – work in a variety of jobs for as little or as long as you want. You have an entire year to build your CV and learn about the American workplace.
