ICCE: International Culture and Career Exchange

Founded in 2005, ICCE is a U.S. Department of State designated J-1 Visa sponsor organization for the BridgeUSA Intern, Trainee and Summer Work Travel Exchange Visitor Programs.
For more than 15 years, ICCE has worked with participants and partners from all over the world and companies throughout the United States. Our mission is to offer young individuals from around the world life-changing opportunities to learn firsthand about American culture, society and values, and to share their own with the American people through participation in well-structured and guided U.S. Exchange Visitor programs with carefully selected and vetted host organizations throughout the United States. We are dedicated to promoting cultural exchange and to fulfilling our obligations as a U.S. Department of State designated program sponsor by providing high quality programs in full compliance with the federal regulations.

Our reputation has been earned based on the following strengths

  • Ongoing monitoring of programs and constant support to both host organizations and their participants

Health and safety: Ensuring the welfare of all participants is a basic principle at ICCE. We provide our participants with the support they need to encounter the new world and cultures safely. Our comprehensive medical insurance coverage for participants exceeds regulatory minimum requirements.
