About us

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 New York City. One thing all the employees have in common is having had their own, personal experience of living in America for an extended period of time. An international experience begins with an international team! We would like to introduce our team to you.
