Welcome 2013 J-1 Summer Work/Travel Program Participants!
United Work and Travel, a division of American Pool Enterprises Inc. is excited to welcome students from across the world as they arrive for their J-1 Summer Work/Travel Program this Memorial Day weekend. United Work and Travel welcomes about 4,000 participants annually from the countries of Thailand, China, Jamaica, Taiwan, Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Moldova, Poland, Colombia, Ecuador, Turkey and the Dominican Republic.
These participants are able to explore the USA while earning money at seasonal or temporary jobs. They are employed as lifeguards, amusement park workers, housekeepers, waiters or waitresses, hotel staff, resorts area workers and many other fulfilling jobs. Participants are exposed to American culture and work to improve their English language skills.
United Work and Travel has been sponsoring full-time university students from outside of the USA on the J-1 Summer Work/Travel Program since June of 2003. We provide 24-hour assistance for our students and host company employers from the time that the initial application is submitted until our student participants return to their home country. Additionally, UWT also provides assistance with Social Security, student housing, health insurance claims and much more.
We want to extend a warm welcome to all the participants currently arriving and hope they have a terrific experience this summer!
