Where We Work
What We Do
Cultural Vistas builds upon the longstanding and rich histories of the Association for International Practical Training (AIPT) and CDS International. The exciting result of a January 2011 merger between the two recognized exchange leaders, Cultural Vistas represented an exciting new beginning; bringing together a strengthened voice, broader global network, and the enhanced capacity to continue and create new and innovative programs that engage young people, build mutual understanding, and develop global competencies.
