Short Training

Stage-USA’s Short Training program offers you the chance to gain professional experience for a short period (1 to 3 months) at a company in the United States. You do not need a J-1 Visa for this program, therefore the costs are substantially lower than the costs for the internship or traineeship programs. You also do not need to be enrolled in a study; everyone between 18 and 30 years old may apply for this program. Please note that this is a voluntary program, meaning you will not receive compensation.

What is a Short Training?

Short Training means you will be working voluntarily in an American company for a period anywhere from 1 to 3 months. This gives you the opportunity to build on your resume while getting to know the American culture, which we are confident, will be a valuable and unforgettable experience. Stage-USA offers Short Trainings throughout the United States in nearly every field. We can also arrange housing (with a host family) and insurance. We offer Short Trainings in the following areas:

  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Hospitality/Tourism
  • Education (Teacher program)
  • Financial Service
  • Media/Entertainment
  • Fashion/Design
  • Daycare
  • Journalism
  • Business & Management
  • Engineering (limited offer)

Housing

Stage-USA will place you with a host family where you will stay during your program, referred to as a “homestay”. You will receive lodging, breakfast and dinner. Homestay is safe, affordable and it gives you the ability to gain a better and more complete understanding of the American culture.

Period

There are no specific start dates for a Short Training program, so you can sign up anytime throughout the year. We only require an average of 1 to 2 months for finding a placement for you at a company. In most cases, you will work full-time within the company.
