Become a Local Coordinator
Place and Mentor International Exchange Students!
International Exchange Coordinators (IECs) are vital to the success of high school exchange. Our IECs work at the local level to identify school slots for students, recruit caring host families, match families with the right student, and support students and families throughout the year. As the leader in global youth exchange, EF Foundation provides better support, benefits and training to our coordinators than any other exchange organization.
EF Foundation has a diverse national network of more than 700 dedicated IECs who are passionate about connecting their communities to the world through student exchange. IECs are not employees, and although they are rewarded for their efforts, a “volunteer spirit” is essential.
To learn more about the IEC position, call 1-800-447-4273 or fill out our interest form and a Recruitment Manager will contact you within two business days.
"I love working with my families and students. We have so much fun together, we learn so much and laugh so often. And when it's time to take the students to the airport at the end of the year, we cry together. Being an IEC has enriched my life more than I can say." - Jan, IEC since 1993, South Dakota
