Representatives needed to work with host families, exchange students

The World Heritage International Student Exchange Program is looking for representatives to work with volunteer host families and international exchange students in the community.

World Heritage provides academic year and semester exchange programs in the United States for high school students from around the world. Students ages 15-18 have passed a series of academic and character requirements, and are awaiting an opportunity to embark on their American adventure.

Local representatives have the opportunity to support American high school students in their journey abroad.

Area representatives recruit and screen prospective host families, supervise and exchange students in their community throughout the year, and interview American students who wish to live and learn abroad. Area representatives are compensated based on the number of students they are supervising.

World Heritage’s primary goal is to contribute to international understanding by enabling students to learn about other languages and cultures through active participation in family, school and community life. Through sharing their home, host families and communities also gain new knowledge and appreciation of other cultures and languages.
