Work and Travel Program

American Dream cooperates with a vast number of sponsors, because of that we are able to cater to our candidates wishes when it comes to the location of their program and their employer.

We cooperate with over 400 employers across the USA and because of that we are able to find just the right adventure for you!

We strive to present and offer each candidate a program suited to their charater and affinities, because it isn’t our goal to send someone to on a program where they don’t see themselves having the time of their life. because both you and we want the same thing – for you to have the best summer of your lives!

Each candidate is unique and so is every location and employer. Our goal is to match our candidates with the right location and employer so as to get the winning combination!

The American Dream agency was made out of love to America and cultural exchange, our goal is to help any students interested in the program so that they have the opportunity to live their American dream!

All the employees in the agency have participated in the Work and Travel program multiple times, and the owner is a representative of the Work and Travel alumni organization of Serbia and a scholarship holder of the USA.

We are the only agency in Europe that offers the ability to pay for the program from the USA, and all without mediation from a bank or any organization. In this way we wish to help our candidates have the chance to live their American dream stress free.
