Getting Involved with GAA in the USA

    Hi everyone, hope all good.

    Planning on travelling to America (not sure which city yet) for the summer on a working Visa (Wasn't adventurous enough during University to do a J1😅)! I've nearly got the application form completed but before scheduling a visa interview at the US Embassy wanted to pick a few GAA peoples brains about getting involved in GAA out there!

    My main question is about finding employment out there which I know is a prerequisite to obtaining a working visa. How do J1 students manage to get employment & accommodation out there? Is it a matter of dropping some GAA clubs out there a message & seeing if they can help out in some way? I'm only 24 so working on a building site (or any work like that) wouldn't bother me at all as the opportunity to meet new people, do some sightseeing and experience something new would be a fair trade off!

    And secondly, any good suggestions on what Cities I should consider?

    Any help is really appreciated with the above as its a scratch I do want to itch before life gets in the way!
