This week, close to 500 university students from Thailand arrive in the US on the GeoVisions Work and Travel Program.  GeoVisions is designated by the US State Department to sponsor exchange students who come to work in seasonal jobs in the US.  This year, while there are fewer jobs, and, thus, fewer students, there's still a good chance you might run into some of our students -- especially if you are visiting a major theme park, or even a national park.  You might have some of them serve you at a McDonalds in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio or Florida.  These students are from Thai universities, and the State Department gives young people the chance to learn about America by having the ability to work for a couple months during their school vacation.  Thai students have a vacation from March to June.  So ... if you see a Thai student in your travels, be sure to say hello (Sa-wa-dee Kap --- or Sa-wa-dee Kah if you are female).

Last week I wrote a Blog post about our new programs in Lebanon and then found a fantastic article about Beirut on USA Today. Right now we have Conversation Corps-Lebanon available if you want to live with a family in Lebanon and volunteer to teach them English.  We also have openings for Conversation Partners in our Work and Travel office in Beirut. Be a cultural ambassador at the same time and meet lots of Lebanese college students coming by the office to interview for the U.S. Work and Travel program. Speak English with them and help screen their English skills.

Our Work & Travel Students Can't Come To The U.S. With This Helmet

on Jan 26, 2010 8:47:00 PM By | Randy LeGrant | 0 Comments | Work and Travel
Our Work and Travel team was in Taiwan this past weekend interviewing Taiwanese students for the GeoVisions U.S. Work and Travel program.  Our CEO, Kevin Morgan, came across this photo in the Taiwan Times.  In Asia people rely on motorcycles as a staple of transportation, and there are helmet laws in just about every country.  Is this Banyan Tree in Puyan Township really promoting helmet use, or was it "pruned" by buses and trucks?   We have over 300 Taiwan students coming to the U.S. on Work Exchanges this year!  American employers hire Work and Travel students to provide an international dimension to their staff.  Guests at theme parks, hotels and restaurants enjoy talking with people from other countries -- learning about their cultures.  Taiwanese students also volunteer on our Global Work and Service Programs around the world.
