Cultural Exchange is the cornerstone of our J-1 program. We plan for at least 2 cultural activities a month, which means we have thousands of participants across the United States experiencing local culture. Cultural activities increase in the participant’s emotional ties to the community they’re living and working in, strengthens the relationships with their colleagues, and introduces Americans to invaluable experiences from the participant’s home culture.
On July 21, 2014, participants from the Ocean City area experienced an American baseball game in Ocean City. A Spirit employee accompanied them to a minor league baseball game, where they cheered for the team, did the wave in the stadium, and learned more about the rules of baseball.
