GACC´s Club J-1

As a participant in GACC's J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program, participants have the opportunity to join GACC's "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 Chamber 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 clubj1(at) with the subject line "Club J-1". 

Participation includes:

  • Invitations to our group events located in New York, including concerts, private bars/lounge parties, sporting events, theater shows, networking events, gallery/museum events, comedy shows, cultural seminars/orientation and lectures/academic events, Bi-weekly "German Stammtisch" at a local bar or pub, an extensive Housing List for the New York area, quick access to other interns and trainees in your area and a lising of local events via our website, opportunity to connect with new interns and trainees arriving at your host company

The next event of GACC's Club J-1 can be found here.

(Note: due to the corona pandemic, there will be no in-person events such as "Stammtisch" until further notice)
