Exchange Day is a nationwide celebration of the power of international exchange. Traditionally, international exchange participants come together to "eat, play, and give" in their host community -- to share cultural diversity, make a positive impact in their communities, and have fun!

While the ability to hold events is limited compared to past celebrations, our goal is to bring awareness to the importance of exchange programs. This year, we are extending Exchange Day throughout the month of August.

Throughout the entire month of August we will be sharing participant stories and we invite you to share your #ExchangeDay experiences, too!

Whether you’re volunteering, sharing a meal, enjoying a fun new activity, tag us and use #ExchangeDay2021. Help bring awareness of the power of exchange programs!

Today we recognize Juneteenth, which commemorates the day the last group of enslaved peoples were informed of their freedom in Galveston, Texas on June 19th, 1865. Though the Emancipation Proclamation took effect in January 1863, it took over two years for news to spread West and the Proclamation to be enacted. Juneteenth celebrations vary across the country as Black communities celebrate and reflect on this pivotal day in American history – a day of long-awaited freedom.

‼️THIS JUST IN‼️

In collaboration with Alliance for International Exchange, our collective advocacy efforts have paid off.

Today, Senators Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), and Angus King (I-Maine) have sent a letter urging President Joe Biden to rescind former-President Donald Trump’s ban on seasonal, employer-sponsored, and cultural exchange visas under Proclamation 10052.

The Senators’ letter also calls on President Biden to “direct your consulates to resume timely processing of nonimmigrant visas.” See the full letter attached, as well as the press release from Senator Menendez here (https://lnkd.in/gTAfAhE).

🍀 Today is Saint Patrick’s Day. Each year on March 17th, Irish Americans celebrate their European roots. People wear green costumes, drink beer, and use green shamrocks for decoration. Did you know the Chicago River has been dyed green every year, with the exception of 2020, since 1962? This year, the festivities have resumed with reduced capacity to ensure a safe environment to celebrate. 🍀

"The Work Travel Program makes America and new ideas accessible. It's an opportunity to develop soft skills, broaden our perspectives, learn from one another and travel while we are young. I hope governments continue to see the value it has for the future. I hope visas will happen for 2021."

"I am happy to be in the United States of America with my best friend! When we finished the quarantine we decided to go to Mendota Lake, Madison, and to walk on the lake. It was amazing because we had never walked on a frozen Lake! We also walked around the Universitiy of Wisconsin, and visited the Wisconsin State Capitol.
Thanks Intrax for supporting us!"

The soft but unmatched power of US foreign exchange programs

“Out of the darkness of a year of terrible loss and detachment, a renewal of human contact is the best kind of light at the end of the tunnel. Doubling down on exchanges will inspire, inform and engage foreign audiences while promoting closer ties with U.S. allies and competitors alike. “
