US Road Trip
Robin Lerner’s First Hand Experience
Let’s Take a US Road Trip: We are super excited to virtually introduce you to Robin Lerner, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. She was appointed to this position in February of 2012. Her primary responsibility is to oversee the J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program, which annually brings over 200,000 international participants to the United States to study, teach, and build life and professional skills through direct cultural experiences.
On July 7, 2014 Robin Lerner kicked off her Route J-1 Blog. Her goal is to hit the American US Roads and “meet people who participate in the Department’s Exchange Visitor Program and share their experiences”. She invites you to follow her department’s blog and see first-hand how this program is impacting the lives and communities across the large and small towns of America.
