Local representative needed for international student exchange
Submitted By Nacel Open Door
Nacel Open Door is a nonprofit high school student exchange organization headquartered in St. Paul, MN. Each year the Academic Year Program places about 500 students with volunteer American host families for an academic year or semester. Nacel Open Door is a J-1 exchange program sponsor under the designation of the U.S. Department of State and has a full listing with the Council on Standards for International Education Travel (CSIET).
Local Representatives act as the primary link between our exchange students, host families, and local high schools. Local Representatives serve as the exchange student's advocate and support system while they are in the United States. Local Representatives are required to maintain monthly contact with each of the students and families and to address problems they bring to your attention.
A qualified candidate should be interested in cross-culture education, be outgoing, and have a flexible and positive attitude. Local Representatives must feel comfortable approaching schools, churches, organizations, and individuals in order to identify hosts. The ideal candidate is highly organized, resourceful, is a good judge of character, connected to the community, and has experience working with students.
