College students from around the world can work in seasonal positions, live in and learn about the United States, travel, and make friends during their summer break from school. The WISE® Work and Travel Program in the USA provides the visa sponsorship, placement in a seasonal job at resort and vacation destinations throughout the US, as well as housing assistance and ongoing personal support to make this dream a reality for thousands of participants.

This program is open to university students from around the world who want to experience another culture while earning money to support their stay. By working throughout the United States, participants have a unique chance to experience the United States as more than just tourists, and to share their own traditions and culture with people from both the U.S. and abroad. By living abroad in a English speaking environment, gaining some practical experience, and meeting friends that last a lifetime, participants benefit from the experience for years to come.
