Take Action: Urge Congress to Cosponsor a Resolution Supporting J-1 Visa Programs

This past spring the White House signed an executive order directing federal agencies to evaluate H and J visa programs (among others), including the summer work travel (SWT) and camp counselor programs—part of the J-1 visa program that's important to Girl Scout councils across the country, as it affects camp staff hiring practices and the availability of summer programming for girls nationwide. It also enables students, youth workers, and teachers to open the eyes of U.S. children of all ages to elements of foreign cultures, including a diversity of language and ideas.
