Extroverted. Passionate. Self-starter. These are just some of the qualities that our best Local Coordinators possess. These curious and motivated individuals have the rewarding job of finding families in their community who are interested in hosting a foreign exchange student. Local Coordinators also monitor and supervise exchange students and help them adjust to their new life in America.
Thank you for your interest in placing exchange students. Please check back soon to see information on some of our great students arriving in the fall of 2020!
If you are interested in facilitating a short and sweet exchange experience for a number of students coming at the same time, consider becoming a Group Local Coordinator. Group Coordinators place and supervise international students in the United States, recruit and screen host families, and organize activities in their own community for a period of 2 to 4 weeks. Most groups take place in the summer, though programs are also offered during winter and spring breaks as well. Group students come from all over the world, including Spain, France, Italy, Japan, China, Korea and more.
Ideal candidates are highly organized, resourceful, connected to their community (have lived in the same community at least 3 years), able to manage a budget, and experienced in working with students from other countries. This can be a great experience for teachers with summers or other fixed periods of time off. Note that this is a contract position, not an opportunity for full time work.
“Working with the groups has been highly rewarding and very gratifying. The students are also absolutely appreciative for all of their excursions, new surroundings and most importantly, their host families.” — Rosanna, Group Coordinator in California
