The role of Local Coordinators

As an Educatius Local Coordinator, you’ll be ensuring a quality experience for both students and host families. You’ll recruit, screen and prepare prospective host families through community outreach, ensuring every student is placed in a safe and nurturing environment, and support students within their host families once they arrive.

Why become a local coordinator?

Meaningful work

Build relationships with students from around the world and host families in your community while managing your own time from home

Inspire others

For both students and host families, this exchange year will be one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences of their lives. You’ll be a key person in making sure it happens smoothly.

Unlock the world

When you bring in an international student to your community, you are expanding its horizons and contributing to your local high school. The tuition these students pay allows schools to enrich their offerings—a bonus for all.

Get compensation

Earn extra income working part-time flexible hours and meeting great people, while contributing to your community and local high schools.
