Convert from F1 to J1 visa

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

Hi I do understand that it is legal to convert from F1 to J1 visa in the united states, however for one to do so, we need to locate a J1 sponsored organization that will assist us to do so. Hence I would like to know if anyone can recommend me any J1 sponsored organization who does that? I tried calling 2 J1 organizations, unfortunately, they will only processed applications that are not from the United States. Please kindly advise!
