Program Overview


876Career Source International operates at a specific standard which its staff works assiduously and relentlessly to maintain. One of the ways in which we ensure that our participants are thoroughly prepared for participation in the Summer Work Travel program is to have an elaborative and informative orientation.
We have readily identified that the best way to ensure our participants are fully prepared as well as to have a successful exchange experience in the U.S. is to receive comprehensive background information about the program and life in the United States prior to their arrival.
This information will help the participants to be fully prepared for challenges which they may encounter during their stay in the U.S., including employment related dilemmas, governmental paper work, taxes, housing, transportation, travel tips, cultural issues, and much more.
