The J-1 Preparedness Program

The J1 Preparedness Program bridges the context and confidence gap with training and mentorship BEFORE students arrive to the United States.

Many J1 Students...

• Have very little knowledge about U.S. amusement and attractions (safety standards, guest service standards, etc.)

• Have English skills, but without industry-specific terminology, or they feel shy to speak in English.

• Have never been to the U.S. and experience unsettling culture shock when they arrive.

Which for Employers Means...

• Often only trained in simple jobs (kiddie rides, back-of-house jobs, etc.)

• Lack confidence when handling safety issues

• Lack confidence when interacting with guests

• Do not want to work in the sun

• Are unhappy with job and living circumstances

• Do not want to return next season

• Do not recommend job to other J1 students
