Exchange Programs in the U.S. or Abroad

CIP facilitates J1 visa Training Programs for international professionals and J1 visa Intern Programs for university students outside the U.S. Both these programs provide short-term “hands-on” experiences in your field of experience in the United States. Programs range between 1 – 18 months. For more information on the J1 Training or J1 Intern program or an application email us at [email protected].

CIP supports U.S. professionals or university students in the human services fields to join one of our alumni programs abroad. These short-term programs provide an overall understanding of the social service sector abroad and allow you a glimpse of life and culture through host family living.
