Become a Local Coordinator
Join our global network and support exchange students from more than 50 countries as a local coordinator, a vital role in cultural exchange programs.
Each year, the US Department of State sponsors international high school students who have earned scholarships to attend high school while living with an American host family for an academic year. With your help, American Councils brings these exceptional students to communities throughout the United States to experience everyday life, in every state.
Local coordinators help to place exchange students with volunteer host families, then serve as a link between the host family, local community, and American Councils throughout the academic year. Represent your community, and ensure that every student’s American experience is unforgettable.
