One of our missions is to provide our teacher applicants with the best experience as J1 visa participants. The J-1 Teacher Program is a nonimmigrant cultural exchange that allows foreign teachers to teach in elementary and secondary schools in the United States.
The J-1 Teacher exchange program is under the U.S. government. It supports foreign-born teachers to work in primary and secondary schools.
