Description
 
The Department of Stateńˇ╗s (State) Summer Work Travel (SWT) program, created in 1961, is intended to further U.S. public diplomacy by giving foreign undergraduate students short-term opportunities to experience the people and way of life in the U.S. In 2005, GAO found that Stateńˇ╗s oversight was insufficient to prevent abuse of the SWT program or its participants. Since 2010, some misues of the program by participants and criminal organizations and abuses of participants -- for example, low wages and substandard living conditions -- have been reported. Also, State has noted that the programńˇ╗s work component has often overshadowed its cultural component. This report examines, among other things, steps that State has taken since 2010 to strengthen program requirements as well as Stateńˇ╗s oversight of sponsors and participants. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
