A little more about us...
We are a Youth Exchange Organisation based in Cape Town that specializes in placing young skilled South Africans at Summer Camps to work alongside Americans and immerse themselves in American culture. We have partnered with the largest J-1 Visa sponsor in the US and leader in international education and exchange called CIEE.
Our staff has a combined 10 years experience in various work abroad and exchange programs and we take great pride in offering transparent, affordable and personalized service to our customers. We are uniquely qualified to help young South Africans experience the US and gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become world citizens and ambassadors.

10 Easy steps to your camp program
One participant. One tree
Here at One27 we aim to transform the travel industry to become greener and more sustainable. We have partnered with Cape Town-based Environmental Social Enterprise called Greenpop who plants trees through urban greening and reforestation projects, spread environmental awareness, and activates people through green festivals and workshops across Southern Africa. To date, they have planted over 100,000 trees and mobilised thousands of changemakers to get Active, not Anxious about our planet. We pledge to have one tree planted for each participant we send on a program. Each applicant will receive a wooden key ring with the coordinates of the tree that was planted on their behalf, this will later serve as a reminder of their time spent in the US.
