Why Work with Amity Institute?
We have over 55 years of experience.

We are with you every step of the way.
From preparing for your visa appointment, to your very last day in the United States, Amity Institute is here to support you. Each participant is assigned to an individual Program Counselor, whose main responsibility is to ensure that every exchange teacher or intern’s experience goes as smoothly as possible. Simply put, we have your back.
Our reputation is impeccable both internationally and locally.
In the 2018-2019 school year alone, Amity Institute is working with individuals from 29 different countries, placing them in 32 states across the USA. Our visa sponsorship includes 346 interns and 272 exchange teachers. In order to operate on such a broad scale, it is imperative that our reputation is near flawless. We pride ourselves on maintaining excellent relationships with our host schools, screening officers, and communities.
We are a nonprofit organization.
While some organizations have primarily monetary goals, Amity Institute uses all financial gains to further support our mission of cultural exchange.
The Amity community will become your extended family.
Your involvement with Amity Institute does not end when you leave the United States. One of the best parts of our organization is the lifelong relationships that develop after an exchange. Our Team is constantly in touch with Amity Alumni, whether via email or social networks, often receiving updates on their professional development. Many times, our former interns will return to participate years later in our Exchange Teacher program. Other times, we receive messages detailing participant reunions, or host families traveling across the world to see their former intern. In our organization, you are not just a participant, you are a family member.
