From the Editor - May 2015


Hello, and welcome to Exchanges, our new newsletter for employers of CIEE Work & Travel USA students.

CIEE Work & Travel USA is one of the U.S. Department of State programs that supports public diplomacy and U.S. foreign-policy goals. We’ve created Exchanges to promote a strong and healthy program, and contribute to the wonderful international exchange experiences enjoyed by the thousands of young people who come to the United States through CIEE every year.

You’ll receive Exchanges once every two months. It will feature columns about cultural exchange, news about government and State Department regulations, plus upcoming events and helpful resources. You’ll also see inspiring success stories from the world of Work & Travel USA.

In this month’s edition you’ll see a link to a transportation safety video that was developed by the exchange community. We encourage you to show this video to all of your Work & Travel USA participants when they arrive in the U.S.

We hope you’ll find the content useful, and we welcome your feedback! Please drop me a line with comments or ideas for future issues. And thanks for contributing your time and effort to support international exchange.
