The J-1 Visa for an internship in the U.S.

GACC's Club J-1

The J-1 visa program offers participants a unique opportunity to experience the U.S. and its diversity and to connect directly with Americans. The cross-cultural component of the internship experience is critical to the short-term success of each individual exchange, and to the long-term effectiveness of the Program and of U.S. public diplomacy overall. People-to-people programs provide unlimited opportunity for exchange visitors and Americans to engage with each other, to inform exchange visitors’ thinking about the United States and its place in the global community, to break down prejudices and misunderstandings, and in the long-term expand and strengthen the relationships between Americans and the rest of the world. 

As a participant in GACC's J-1 visa exchange program, interns will have the opportunity to join the "Club J-1". This is a network of J-1 Interns and their friends from all over the world. It is a perfect opportunity to expand their network and to join cross-cultural events.
