As a U.S. Department of State designated exchange visitor sponsor 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.
Survey data clearly shows that our hard work is paying off. A recent study on the Summer Work Travel program, for example, found that more than 91% of participants reported being either satisfied or very satisfied with their experience. 98% of participants recommended the program to a friend.
As a designated sponsor, our programs are highly regulated and monitored by the Department of State. Participants are encouraged to report any unlawful activities to the Department of State, their program sponsor, and local law enforcement.
Cenet is staffed by highly trained individuals with a high degree of intercultural competency, who themselves have lived, worked, or studied abroad.
