PROGRAM DETAILS

Teach in America, share your culture and bring the world closer together! 

USA Employment brought over 500 cultural exchange educators to the United States of America over past several years. We are ready to find hundreds more in the future.

PURPOSE

USA Employment is a Texas based Cultural Exchange Program for international educators. In collaboration with United States Department of State, USA Employment’s Cultural Exchange Program provides countless opportunities for international educators to live and work in the United States while promoting their own culture.

Foreign Teachers participate in cross-cultural activities in schools and communities. They enhance the U.S. students’ knowledge about foreign cultures and customs. Teachers then return home to share their increased knowledge of U.S. culture, customs and teaching advancements with students of their own country.

Relocation Assistance

USA Employment offers comprehensive relocation assistance to all teachers. There is an associated fee to cover associated expenses. The objective is to ensure that all teachers are settled quickly and comfortably in their new environments. Orientation sessions are focused to minimize the cultural shock and to make the transition as smooth and prompt as possible for teachers as well as schools.

The teacher should plan to bring 3-4 thousand dollars with them to cover costs associated with relocation. USA Employment’s relocation specialists will research multiple options for housing and transportation, which vary from city to city. When applicable, USA Employment will involve local residents (ideally from the same ethnicity as the teacher) as well as representatives from the host school to assist in relocation and acclimation issues. This provides the teacher with an initial contact person of similar background and heritage. Most American cities have thriving international communities.

Relocation includes many items

USA Employment will guide the teacher on all necessary steps for certification as well as meeting any other challenges and requests made by the school system where they are employed. USA Employment also offers around-the-clock relocation advice, assistance and guidance.
