WHO WE ARE
Do you want to see the world as others see it? Do you have a passion for a greater purpose? Good. You are our kind of people.
It’s no longer the transportation or even the destination that matters. It’s the experience. Those brief and life-changing moments that will forever challenge you to create a better world. If you’re ready to start your adventure, we are here to help you write your story abroad.
For more than 20 years, we have provided opportunities to experience world cultures. We are authorized by the U.S. State Department to sponsor the following BridgeUSA programs: Intern, Trainee, Camp Counselor, and Summer Work Travel.
We also oversee The Magellan Exchange, a consortium of universities worldwide offering faculty and student exchange opportunities. Closer to our homes, we operate Culture in the Community (CITC), aiming to provide authentic international education to our area’s youth.
At the end of the day, people need people. That’s where we come in. Cenet is your sponsor, advisor, liaison, travel partner, and ally.
Let’s get started.
Cenet strives to inspire a safer, more prosperous and compassionate world through international education and cultural exploration.
Protecting our exchange participants is priority one.
As a U.S. Department of State designated BridgeUSA organization, it is our foremost responsibility to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all international exchange program participants. During a participant’s time in the U.S., sponsors are required to provide 24/7 support and act as their advocate, ensuring that their rights and safety are protected. Read more.
In 1961, the Fulbright-Hays Act authorized the Exchange Visitor Program to build mutual understanding between Americans and citizens of other nations. To fulfill this mandate, we stress a ‘cultural component’ in all of our programs. We encourage our international participants to experience American history, culture, and customs, and to provide them opportunities to share their own cultures with Americans.
The Exchange Visitor Program (J-1 Visa) went through a recent rebrand and is now known as BridgeUSA.
