The Alliance Exchange Voice - Giving Voice to the Power of Exchange
International students from around the world visit Virginia Beach every summer through the Summer Work Travel (SWT) program, a J-1 visa cultural exchange program overseen by the U.S. Department of State. Students visiting this summer had a unique opportunity to learn more about the Virginia Beach community, through Virginia Beach Civic Day at City Hall, a special event coordinated on July 8th by the Virginia Beach International Students Outreach Program. J-1 visa participants who are living and working in the area as well as their host employers and sponsors were invited to attend this event.
