Program Work and Travel is intended for students who wish to familiarize themselves with the culture of the United States and to work during their summer vacation. On the terms of the program, the work placement, conditions and payment are arranged in advance of the trip. On completion of this, students are free to travel throughout the United States.

Candidates do not normally need to have qualification or experience as training will be given at the place of work as necessary. The types of jobs on offer include sales-people, cashiers, hosts and staff in hotels, restaurants or entertainment parks.

Every participant has an additional month to travel in the United States. It may also be possible to get a short visa to visit such countries as Canada or Mexico.
