The Students Work & Travel Programme
“The Students’ Work and Travel Programme (SWAT) was developed by Mark Foster who was a benificiary of a work and Travel Program and have shared the wonderful and enlightening experience of learning about the cultures, languages and customs of other countries through international education and work exchange programs. SWAT was henceforth established as a collective effort to provide the most affordable opportunity for university students to embark on an adventure to experience life and culture in the U.S., earn money and internationalize their résumés.
SWAT collaborates with Cultural Home-stay International (CHI), which are non-profit, public benefit, educational organizations that sponsors other Work & Travel agencies internationally. This collaboration helps university students to travel to the U.S. and benefit from the cultura exchange experience.
