GACC Club J-1

As a participant in GACCs' J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program, participants have the opportunity to join our "Club J-1".

This is an exclusive network of J-1 interns and trainees plus their friends from all over the world. Through this network, participants will be linked to other interns and trainees who share their experiences and meet new people.

If an intern or a trainee applied for a J-1 visa through the German American Chambers of Commerce, he/she is automatically a member of the Club J-1 and will receive interesting information and offers about upcoming events.

If a participant would not like to be part of the Club J-1, he/she may contact with the subject line "Club J-1". 

In addition to updates about cultural events, participants in New York and Chicago will receive invitations to locally organized programs by our regional office representatives, including concerts, private bars/lounge parties, sporting events, theater shows, networking events, gallery/museum events, comedy shows, cultural seminars/orientation and lectures/academic events, and "German Stammtisch" at local restaurants.  We also encourage our participants to take the opportunity to connect with new interns and trainees arriving at your host companies.

A listing of all the GACCs' events in the New York region, including Club J-1 and the Young Professional Network, is available here.

Our Chicago area events are listed on our website here.
