PORT CHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PAX - Program of Academic Exchange seeks local coordinators throughout the U.S. to work with international high school students visiting for the school year.
A community coordinator is an independent contractor who represents the PAX program in the local community. "It is a great opportunity to provide families in your community a positive, life-changing experience through exposure to a new culture," says Bradley Smith, PAX president and chief executive officer.
Anyone interested in becoming a community coordinator should fill out a PAX inquiry form or call 800-555-6211.
"I look forward to the national meeting and the chance to see PAX coordinators from across the country who I now know as friends. Not only is it a lot of fun, but I also learn a great deal, which I can then implement in the field to better serve my students, families, and schools," says Ryan Dunfee, community coordinator from Ohio.
Community coordinators are responsible for recruiting and screening volunteer host families; arranging placement with local high schools; and supporting students, host families, and schools throughout the academic year.
The position boasts part-time, flexible scheduling, modest compensation on a commission basis, annual domestic and international educational travel perks, and is managed from home. Many, but not all, community coordinators bring international, education, or youth program experience to the role. And the most successful have excellent networking, public relations, communications, and sales skills.
Founded in 1990, PAX is a non-profit educational organization and one of a select few U.S. Department of State-designated Exchange Visitor Programs chosen to participate in the prestigious U.S. government sponsored Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) and Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) programs. Each year, more than 1,100 teenagers visit the U.S. as PAX exchange students.
