Our mission is to work with the Sevier County (Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville) communities to create and develop a hospitable area for the J-1 Summer Work Travel Program participants.

Initiated by a group of J-1 State Department Designated Sponsors, local organizations, community members, host employer, and housing providers, our aim is to provide a safer and hospitable environment and to enhance the cultural exchange experience of the participants while in the program. Our initiative is open to all volunteers, organizations, businesses and residents.
