Today is the unofficial last day of summer, and I can’t help but reflect on the great successes the J-1 Summer Work Travel program has had this year. With participants starting to end their jobs and travel around the country before returning home, fun stories of adventures have been pooling into CCI Greenheart’s offices.

Watch our YouTube playlist to see some of the wonderful cultural experience our Work and Travel participants and their American counterparts are having this season.


As we start to say goodbye to our participants and Ambassador Scholars, we would like to hear your experience with summer or the Summer Work Travel program. What was your favorite American experience this summer?

However you experienced American or international culture this summer, have a Happy Labor Day!
