One of the most important things Local Coordinators (LCs) do is match students with host families. LCs interview prospective host families, learning about their interests and lifestyles, then guide them through the placement process. The LC remains in contact throughout the school year for support and questions.
Our LCs are independent contractors. Each student placement and supervision earns you compensation and travel opportunities. CIEE appreciates the time, hard work, and dedication that each LC brings to cultural exchange, and we want you to grow professionally, and discover new places and cultures, too. That’s why we recognize your efforts with opportunities for development and to travel to exciting international destinations.
An LC wears many hats: matchmaker between students and host families, mentor, ambassador, facilitator, troubleshooter, and friend. The LC is the first person that host families and students meet, and a trusted and supportive companion. When help is needed students and host families can rely on their LC. Local Coordinators are an important part of our success and as the primary link between exchange students, host families, schools, and CIEE, Local Coordinators (LC) have the power to help people share traditions and perspectives, changing lives and building a better world.
Many LCs are very active, working with several students each year. Others place and supervise one student at a time. LCs come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all have one thing in common, they have a heart for students and want to create opportunities for young people. To become an LC you must be at least 25 and be able to pass a criminal background check. To find out more about what an LC does call me at show contact info
