Travel opportunities in the States

Young Bermudians can learn about exchange opportunities to work and travel in the United States at an information session being hosted by Consul General Mary Ellen Koenig.

The programme allows students pursuing certificates or degrees at an academic institution and recent graduates to work as camp counsellors, au pairs, interns, or in fields such as the hospitality industry or at theme parks.

It also provides exposure to American culture and travel opportunities, according to a press release from the US Consulate.

Overseen by the US Department of State, the programme is operated by numerous organisations in the US that promote educational travel. These organisations are responsible for job placements and provide advice on visas, housing, and other programme issues; fees for these services are charged and vary. Each organisation is vetted by and overseen by the Department of State to ensure participants' health, welfare and safety through government-mandated regulations.

The event is open to young people from any school in Bermuda and their parents, although the US Consulate stresses the initiative is only open to young people over the age of 18.

The information session will be at 1pm on Monday, at the Bermuda College in Blue Room H115. US advisor Janea Mallory will assist those who are interested. Call 239-4018 to confirm attendance.
