Each year, CIEE partners with hundreds of families across the U.S. to host our international high school students. In return for hosting, families learn about a different culture, enjoy lifelong friendships with students, fulfill the dream of a young person, and become global ambassadors in their own communities
Our Local Coordinators play an important role in our cultural exchange program by providing local support to our high school foreign exchange students, their host families and their schools. Candidates for the Local Coordinator position are creative, patient, persistent, objective, and have strong communication skills.
Local Coordinators work from home and on their own time, determining the number of students they want to place and support. Many of our coordinators have full time jobs, are stay at home moms and dads, or are retired. This is a fun and unique opportunity to connect with your community and make an impact on the world!
CIEE offers a competitive compensation package to Local Coordinators, including a placement and supervision payment for every student. As a Local Coordinator, you control your earning potential by choosing how many students you want to place and supervise throughout the year. Our Local Coordinators receive a placement payment of $600 once a student is placed with an approved host family and $200 per semester for each student they supervise, for a total of $1,000 per year-long placement.
In addition to payments for the students that you place and supervise, you can also earn your way to our CIEE annual meetings - all-inclusive trips to desirable domestic and international locations. This year, our international meeting will be held in London, England, and our national meeting will be in San Diego! The CIEE annual meetings give you the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with over 400 Local Coordinators across the country as well as participate in personal and professional development trainings. The chance to see the world is one of the most exciting perks of this opportunity!
As a Local Coordinator, you:
• Recruit and select host families in your area
• Match students with host families
• Build and maintain relationships with local schools
• Provide guidance to students and host families throughout the experience
• Work with like-minded people to expand the impact of intercultural exchange
