On some J1 Programmes you are able to take family.
You are allowed to on the J1 Intern and J1 Trainee programmes - but NOT on the Summer Camp Programmes or the Summer Work and Travel Programme.
Any family members will need to apply for a J2 visa - you can get the application for these here
Additionally, each J2 will required additional funds of $1000/ month for the time you are in the USA. For example, an applicant planning on going with their husband or wife will need to she EITHER a salary of at least $2000/ month for the duration of their time in the USA OR (if your salary is less than this) proof of additional funds to meet this figure.
EXAMPLE: J1 Salary of $1000/ month on a 12 month programme planning on taking a J2 dependent will need to show access to funds equivalent of $12000 US Dollars at time of application.
This figure will increase by $1000/ month for each additional J2 Application.
