Andrew Jacobson, Program Associate

Andrew joined our team in winter 2019 as a recent graduate. His interest in exchange programs originally sparked from his time living abroad during middle and high school in India, Mexico and Brazil, and from living at the International Residential College at the University of Virginia.

Andrew realized after his own experience abroad just how the perspectives you obtain from immersion in another culture will shape the rest of your life and he is thrilled to see the students today doing the same in the YES and FLEX programs. 

As part of the International Student Support team, Andrew works primarily on participant monitoring and financial issues, as well as various special projects throughout the year. Questions about reimbursements and honoraria, VIP calls, second home visits, monthly reports, and student stipends can all be directed to him.

Andrew earned his BA at the University of Virginia, double majoring in Latin American Studies and Studio Art.
