Stage-USA was founded in February 2010 with the goal of offering quality internships in America to European students. Since then, it has grown to become a well-rounded company that serves students in every single aspect of fulfilling their dream to go to America. Stage-USA is based at the Haparandaweg 67-B6 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and has staff with a variety of cultural backgrounds, including American. In addition, some of our colleagues work mostly from America.
