Hull Foundation J 1 visa teacher visa Cordell Hull Foundation

The Cordell Hull Foundation for International Education is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to continuing the work of Cordell Hull, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 as "Father of the United Nations."  Secretary Hull served for twelve years under Franklin Roosevelt, the longest-serving Secretary of State in U.S. history.  Embracing his goals of international peace, the Cordell Hull Foundation (CHF) has offered programs to improve relations bet
ween the United States and other countries, primarily through educational and cultural exchange, since 1951.

Click on J 1 Visa Teacher Exchange on the tab at the left of the page for more detailed information about the J-1 Exchange Visitor Teacher Program which the U.S. Department of State authorizes CHF to sponsor.  The J-1 visa Teacher Exchange Program was established by the Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended.  Both foreign teachers and students in American classrooms benefit through learning about the customs and mores of other nationalities, as well as literature and spoken language skills. 

Cordell Hull Foundation offices are located in midtown Manhattan near Central Park.

Honoring Commitment to Global Education and Peace

The Cordell Hull Foundation actively sponsors exchange programs for qualifying teachers from all over the world.  Teachers hail from over sixty countries including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Barbados, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, England, Estonia, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, South Korea, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Martinique, Mexico, Nepal, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Panama, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Wales.  After enjoying the experience of teaching in the United States from 1-3 years, teachers return to their home countries to share positive memories and feedback on a more accurate impression of American culture than is reflected in the media.  Note:  Teacher programs are not restricted to countries listed.

CHF J-1 VISA Teacher Exchange Program

Primary languages represented are French, Spanish, Greek, German, and Mandarin.   Through contracts with individual public and private schools and school systems throughout the US, CHF administers J-1 visa exchange teacher visitor programs primarily in foreign-language and language immersion, bilingual, ESL, and Baccalaureate curricula.

The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program allows elementary and secondary-school teachers to teach under CHF J-1 visa sponsorship in the U.S. from 1-3 years, renewable annually. CHF works directly with schools rather than through attorneys or other third-party intermediaries.  The Foundation is not an employment agency and does not look for positions in which to place individual foreign teachers nor do we allow foreign teachers to pay for cost of sponsorship in our Exchange Visitor Teacher program.  No fees are charged for teacher referrals from our database.  For information on our exchange program, click on this link: J-1Visa Teacher Exchange Program for details.

The Cordell Hull Foundation specializes in language-immersion curricula - French, Spanish, German, Greek, Italian and Mandarin -  where students are taught regular subjects in the target language.  We also sponsor foreign language and ESL teachers.

Currently, CHF accepts applications from schools and school districts.  We do not respond to inquiries from recruiters or attorneys.  Teachers applying for an existing program must first read the Frequently Asked Questions  FAQ link on our website and J-1 Visa Exchange Teacher page, then complete our Teacher application form.  The About Us/ Cordell Hull Biography section might assist in answering essay questions.

deLesseps S. "Toni" Morrison Summer Study Program

The Foundation's intensive Summer Studies Program in Antigua, Guatemala, aids businesspeople and teachers to rapidly become fluent in Spanish while enjoying an idyllic setting in this quaint village in Central America.  CHF has documented success for learners who stay immersed in Spanish for a sustained period without reverting to English or the learner's native language.  Additional information on Foundation programs, donor opportunities and sponsorship may be found in the How to Donate section.
