Quite recently students could hardly enjoy the privilege and study, work or take internship abroad but now the situation is completely different and it looks like a new youth boom! Not surprising! After all the world turned into a huge open space where one can realize one’s most bold plans, talents and ambitions.
There are lots of student’s exchange programs. One of these programs is Work &Travel USA. The aforesaid program combines a pre-arranged and paid job in the U.S.A., holiday and travel opportunities when one can get acquainted with American culture and traditions. Furthermore Work &Travel USA is realized under the aegis of the U.S. State Department.
These fantastic States…
This summer some students of our university have decided to take part in this program.
Iegor Sukach is student of the Electromechanics, Energysaving and Control Systems Institute of the Kremenchuk Mykhaylo Ostrogradskiy State University who has become one of those lucky Work &Travel USA participants and he has happily shared his impressions about summer in the U.S.A with us.
Iegor Sukach against remarkable natural background in the U.S.A
During his stay in the United States of America first he worked on the ship processing fish, and then he planted the flowers and worked as painter and electrician. Iegor managed to see Alaska and visit Seattle, Sitka. He took tours to « Boeing » works, «Museum of Rock-n-roll» and many other American places of interest.

Who said work is boring? :)
From Iegor’s words – even sitting in the plane he couldn’t believe he was going to the U.S.A. This dream seemed to him so bright, cherished and unfeasible.

Here you are – Dreams come true!!!
Iegor was deeply impressed by the beauty and variety of the nature in America. Nevertheless the most important thing about the whole summer spent in the U.S.A. for Iegor is many new friends he has made with and is keeping contact with upon his returning from the U.S.A. Besides that our student mentions that he has considerably improved his English acquiring great importance in modern world and at the same time Iegor has become much more independent and that’s quite important in our life as well.
To meet new friends is always interesting!
Work &Travel USA was founded in the sixties but it was too expensive for students to participate so not many could afford that. Anyway from the nineties this program started growing popular attracting more and more young, ambitious and creative people.
If you are one of those then the following information is not for consideration but for particular actions.
Thus if you are from 18 to 24 and your spoken English is good then you’ve got a chance to spend your summer in the U.S.A!
