Greenheart Exchange’s Teach USA Program connects highly-qualified international teachers with U.S. host schools to promote cultural understanding and public diplomacy. The purpose of the Teach USA program is to promote interaction and enhance mutual understanding between U.S. and international teachers. Participating teachers are placed in a K-12 host school for 1-3 years and teach a wide range of subjects. During this program, teachers can expect to sharpen their professional skills and take part in cross-cultural activities within their schools and local communities.

The Exchange Visitor Program promotes mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by educational and cultural exchanges. This Non-Immigrant Visa program is overseen by the U.S. Department of State and gives foreign nationals the opportunity to come to the U.S. on short-term immersion programs to learn U.S. customs and culture.
At the end of the program, Interns and Trainees return to their home countries to share what they learned and experienced with their peers, thereby supporting the development of peaceful international relations.
The visa sponsor is a private-sector organization designated by the U.S. Department of State to administer the program. As the J-1 visa sponsor, Greenheart Exchange is responsible for ensuring that the Intern and Trainee program is compliant with all federal regulations, that the prospective applicant is eligible and will have ample opportunity for cultural immersion, and that the host organization will provide a quality training environment.
Greenheart Exchange’s dedicated staff have a deep understanding of Exchange Visitor Program regulations, a commitment to customer service, and a passion for cultural exchange.
