J-1 Work & Travel


New Zealand

By solving your seasonal staffing shortages and bringing cultural exchange opportunities to your workplace, the AHA Work and Travel program is an innovative hiring solution that is good for your business…..good for the world!

Through this program, top international university students are able to expand their knowledge and understanding of the U.S. through employment and cultural exchange opportunities. Students can work in the U.S. for up to four months during their official school break.

And with AHA it’s simple—we recruit students for your positions, assist with all of the required paperwork, provide insurance, pre-departure orientation and 24/7 support to you and the participants at no additional cost to you. AHA is designated by the U.S. Department of State as a sponsor of the J-1 Work and Travel Program.
