Our Local Coordinators are men and women who believe that student exchange is a life changing experience for young people and the host families within the local community. They represent our organisation within their community and are the most visible members of our team. Their presence is the most important link in the chain that brings together all parties involved in the exchange program; student, host family and in a lesser degree the school.
The role of the LC is to provide ongoing support to the exchange students placed within their community and their host families, as well as assisting us in recruiting and interviewing potential host families.
The LC can also be requested to interview local students applying to go on exchange overseas and to assist students at the airport for their arrival or departure.
The rewards for the LC are limitless; meet new people in the community, establish life long friendships, share the Australian way of life and culture, gain an increased cultural awareness and acceptance of a different culture to their own.
