Global Access Program
Officially launched in January 2014, our Global Access Soft Landing program grew out of our partnership with the French-American Chamber of Commerce, Philadelphia Chapter.
Since its inception, our program has hosted 27 companies and supervised over 15 J-1 Trainees and Interns.
We are a U.S. State Department designated sponsor organization for J-1 business trainees. Learn more about the program and how you can apply!
