Work & Travel Program offers overseas university students a unique opportunity to personally experience life and culture in the US. During the school holiday periods, the international participants are able to work side by side with participants from other countries at entry-level jobs. The program allows participants to experience US culture and traditions while working for a US business.
After finishing their work commitment, the participants have an optional travel period to sightsee and further discover the United States.
Global Friends is a program agent/facilitator appointed by US Program Sponsor to recruit participants and administer the program in Uzbekistan. For 2017 Summer, Global Friends have partner relationships with two US visa Sponsors: Cultural Homestay International and Center for International Career Development
