Teach-USA, an employment facilitation agency registered under the State of New Mexico, is a third-party agent to accredited J1 visa sponsors of the US Department of State. Teach-USA has a partner agency with accredited POEA agencies and immigration lawyers for H1B visa aspirants.
Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons, is a form of modern-day slavery in which traffickers may lure individuals with false promises of employment and a better life. Individuals and their families may also fall victim to many other types of serious criminal activity in the United States, including rape, kidnapping, stalking, manslaughter, domestic violence, and sexual assault, among others.*1
Under federal law, a “severe form of trafficking in persons” is:
Sex trafficking: When someone recruits, harbors, transports, provides, solicits, patronizes, or obtains a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act, where the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or the person being induced to perform such act is under 18 years of age; or
Labor trafficking: When someone recruits, harbors, transports, provides, or obtains a person for labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.*2
Teach-USA does not engage in bonded labor practices, price gouging and/or other predatory, misleading, or illegal business practices contrary to the letter and the J1 Exchange Visa Program in general.
Teach-USA has a built-in training program called the Wise-Up Collaboration Program that includes awareness and education about this type of modern-day slavery.
The Teach-USA prequalification process addresses no promise of a better life in the teacher's US journey. Teach-USA keeps all the teacher's written responses/records as a proof that no force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of involuntary servitude, debt bondage, or slavery are intended or demanded.
The teachers have the freedom to join the Teach-USA program or not. Teachers sign a Teach-USA agreement with the Teach-USA legal representative in the Philippines and a Teach-USA services agreement with similar content for notarization in New Mexico, USA based on the current Teach-USA agreed-upon services and fees.
The fees of Teach-USA are exclusive of the costs imposed by the accredited US Department of State J1 visa sponsors. The Teach-USA payment scheme involves payment of the balance while the teachers are already working in the US.
