Since 1985, CCUSA International Work and Travel Programs has placed thousands of participants in jobs, internships, volunteer opportunities and teaching opportunities abroad. They offer several programs for Americans to travel around the world, either through working to earn money while traveling or volunteering on an international project.

Intern duties vary depending on placement. In Russia, participants work as camp counselors at Russian summer camps. In Australia and New Zealand, students travel on a 12-month work/travel visa but are required to find their own living accommodations and position of employment. In Africa, Asia and Latin America, participants can choose from a variety of projects focused on community building, health care, educating and working with youth, ecotourism, conservation and wildlife restoration.


All programs require participants to be at least 18 years of age and high school graduates. Applicants must be U.S. or Canadian citizens. Other non-U.S. citizens may be eligible through their country of citizenship.
