The goal of the ETA program is to have Fullbrighters assist English teachers and help teach the language in foreign countries. At the same time, they serve as cultural ambassadors for the United States. The age and academic level of their students vary by country.
Upon his return, Steinberg will pursue his master’s in philosophy with a teaching assistantship at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.

Prior to joining the staff, Javsicas worked for 13 years in scholarly and textbook publishing at W.W. Norton and Palgrave Macmillan.
Former University of Pennsylvania Wharton School graduate John Colborn was named chief operating officer at JEVS Human Services. The former director of skills for America’s Future, an initiative of the Aspen Institute, has extensive experience in workforce and economic development, which are JEVS’ cornerstones. A graduate of Oberlin College with a bachelor’s in government and economics, he also received his MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
