J1 Ireland draws on over 40 years of combined on the ground experience from the Chicago based team.  Our team and its close partners have worked tirelessly in the Irish community for decades providing immigration and social services in Chicago with an emphasis on summer Irish J1 students.

Our team includes J1 Ireland Directors Cyril Regan, President of Chicago Irish Immigrant Support (CIIS) and Matt Rogers, founder and owner of the website undocumentedirish.com (a central hub for the Irish Government funded Irish Immigration Support Centers throughout the USA) and PRO for Chicago Celts for Immigration Reform. Our US Coordinator is Breandán Magee, former Vice President of the Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers and now Executive Director of CIIS.

Together they can leverage their local and national relationships and use their decades long experience to provide J1 Ireland’s clients with the ultimate summer experience.
