As sponsors and hosting employers of the programs, it is our privilege and responsibility to ensure that all our participants have opportunities to engage in cultural activities outside of the work place, while sharing their own cultures with Americans they meet. On August 3rd 2015, AAG will be collaborating with other sponsors on the second annual “J Day,” one day dedicated to providing J1 participants with the opportunity to “Eat. Play. Give.” in communities across the U.S.
Successfully piloted last summer, J Day is a celebration of international exchange participants coming together to raise awareness of the Exchange Visitor Programs in their communities while sharing their cultural diversity and American customs. The day will feature a fun, classic American activity, an American picnic, and a volunteer service component that will directly benefit J1 host communities.
We believe J Day is a great opportunity to highlight the value of these cultural exchanges, and hope many of you will participate in this unique event.
Please register by sunday the 19th to participate
