“I cannot say enough good things about our Local Coordinator. She is full of information and is a huge support. I really felt her concern and support through her words of encouragement and knowledge of the program.” – Poulin family
Make a Difference in the World!
Are you interested in international cultures? Do you have experience abroad or working with international students in the U.S.? Do you enjoy working with students, schools and families? If so, a PSE Local Coordinator position might be right for you.
We are seeking qualified individuals across the country to recruit host families, offer support to students, families and schools, and help us spread goodwill and understanding by making PSE programs available to international students in your community. PSE Local Coordinators are independent contractors – many hold other full or part-time employment but enjoy working with international students for the enriching experience and supplemental income.

Local Coordinator Responsibilities
PSE Local Coordinators are responsible for acting as a liaison between the student, host family and school. Being a Local Coordinator means building relationships in your community and spreading the word about our programs. Furthermore, PSE Local Coordinators:
- recruit prospective host families
- conduct in-home interviews and visits
- assist with host family screening
- provide orientations to host families and students
- offer support and guidance to students and host families throughout the program
- collaborate with schools to ensure students are adjusting well
Local coordinators act as an extension of PSE and are the first point of contact for host families and students should a problem arise. They are the face of PSE in local communities and schools, and are keen problem-solvers. PSE Local Coordinators receive support and guidance from their Regional Manager and the PSE national office.
I am very thankful for my wonderful local coordinator. She always makes sure that I am doing well. – Soobin, South Korea
