The coordinator will provide his or her own transportation. Coordinators are paid for each host family they recruit, along with certain bonuses for meeting timelines and supervision during student homestays. They must have access to the Internet and an e-mail account and should be interested in foreign exchange programs.
Most work of the coordinator is done between March and September, when families are recruited, students and families are matched, and students arrive for their visits, normally one group for three weeks in July and another group in August. Final paperwork is completed in September.
The coordinator may wish to create a blog similar to this one, which has proven invaluable as a means of recruitment and matching of students and families.
If you are interested in applying, please send an e-mail with your personal information (name, address, phone, e-mail) and related experience and qualifications to Louise Lamy, LEC General Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
