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.

We are a  U.S. Department of State designated sponsor organization for Exchange Visitors in the Trainee category. Learn more about the program and how you can apply!
