Bridge USA Program

Teach USA Program

The purpose of the Teachers Exchange Visitor Program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by means of educational and cultural exchange for classroom teachers. The program provides an extremely valuable opportunity to experience the United States and the American way of life firsthand. At the conclusion of their program Exchange Visitor participants will return to their home country to utilize the experience and skills they have acquired while in the United States. This program has been used effectively for many years to enhance the overall education of our children by exposing them to the culture and diversity of professionally qualified and experienced international educators. For the Exchange Teachers, this service provides pre-departure advice and instruction as well as visa application assistance. Upon arrival in the US, your program sponsor will meet you at the airport and provide temporary accommodation in your host community. You will receive a comprehensive personal and professional orientation designed to help you quickly assimilate to living and teaching in your new environment. We take care of the details for you by providing housing and transportation advice and assistance, we'll even provide you with a pre-paid cell phone so that you will be immediately connected to your new environment.
