U.S. - Korea Teacher Exchange
Application of Interest

We are thrilled you are interested in applying for our J-1 Exchange Visitor Teacher program to teach in U.S. primary and secondary schools.  In order to be considered for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete this application of interest and share your background and resume with us. 

How it works:

You will automatically be considered for any open positions that we identify with schools that may fit your background and preferences.   The process to identify positions takes place from January-May as schools across the U.S. make hiring decisions on an on-going basis.  If we find a good fit, we will reach out to you about the position, determine your interest, and arrange interviews with the school.  After the school offers you a job, you will then complete the full CV application for sponsorship where you will submit documentation of your qualifications (diplomas, references, passport, etc.).  After we approve your application, you will schedule your in-person visa interview at the U.S. Consulate nearest you.

For more specific details on J-1 programs, please review this Power Point.

You may also go ahead and complete this form at any time throughout the year and for the 2021-2022 school year.  We are hoping to gather a pool of interested candidates for the future as well. 

Note:  The less specific preferences you make, the more likely you will be to secure a position.  We cannot guarantee location, salary, etc.

If you are not yet sure whether you want to apply for the program, you do not need to complete this form.  Please contact me at cgillam@culturalvistas.org to discuss your interest and clarify any questions you have.
