What we offer

Variety of host schools and subjects
The size, type, and scope of potential American host schools is almost endless. Great host schools can be found in rural, suburban or urban settings alike. They can be public or private schools, with students in any grade K-12. All schools hosting J-1 teaching interns must be accredited. Common fields of instruction include Biology, Math, Sciences, History, Foreign Languages, Sports, Art, Drama, Music, Technology, and more.
Teaching Interns may be unpaid, or paid, depending upon the circumstances of the host schools and interns. Interns typically receive modest help in the form of housing accommodations and/or a stipend from their host schools. If an internship is paid, the stipend amount is usually around $500 – $1000 per month.
Develop training plan
We help get you started down the right path. A training plan identifies goals and responsibilities for both the candidate and school.
Frequent Check-Ins
Continuous improvement is at the core of a successful teaching internship. Our Program Advisors check-in with both the candidate and school to monitor satisfaction. Interns are evaluated on a regular basis via discussions with Mentor Teachers as well as surveys, and virtual or in-person conferences.
Cultural exchange
Our goal is to foster cultural exchange and acquisition of professional teaching skills through participation in structured and supervised school- and classroom-oriented internship activities in education.
