Alliance Abroad works with international recruiting partners and agents around the world to attract and recruit the very best people. Candidates must meet strict program requirements and possess English language aptitude in order to apply for our programs.

It takes courage for participants to travel far from their homes, and it takes a sense of wonder and adventure to want to explore and experience another culture and country. Passion for personal and professional growth is the common denominator for all program participants.

We select candidates who, not only have the right education and skills, they have the right attitude. They are eager to work, train, learn, teach and contribute, and excited about the experiences that await beyond their own borders and backyards.
“Whenever these students come over, you can see the progression from the first day when they get here to when they’re leaving, they’re just a whole new person. They have even more confidence than they had before, and they have memories that they will have forever.”
– Teri Morgan, Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Program participants who work, train and intern or teach, return to their homes with a much greater understanding of other culture, values and businesses.

As future business leaders of their countries, the lessons they learn and the friendships they make influence the way they view the world. Their new insights and understanding result in strengthening the ties between people from around the world. That, in its essence, is the underlying purpose of the program. And as a host employer get to contribute to this greater global good.
