Give your family an authentic, international experience... at home. Host a student today!
Join our global network and support international exchange students as a Local Coordinator—the backbone of our US-bound exchange programs.
Each year, American Councils supports hundreds of bright, young, motivated students who have earned scholarships to come to US to live with a host family and attend high school for an academic year. Our students are exclusively on merit-based programs supported by the US government and US embassies abroad.
As a Local Coordinator (LC), you will be a part of a US-based community of coordinators, directly supported by our DC headquarters’ team, and backed by our offices in 37 countries around the world. LCs help to facilitate the placement of students into their American host family, then serve as the link between host families, the local community, and American Councils. As an LC, you will support three to four students in your community, ensuring their experience in the US is unforgettable.
