Local Support

At the heart of CIEE’s personalized approach is your Local Coordinator. LCs are our facilitators and primary support contacts for host families, students, schools, and the community. They’re essential to making your student’s time in the United Sates rewarding and enjoyable for all.

Whether you LC is a retired teacher, business owner, or community leader, he or she shares CIEE’s devotion to bringing cultural exchange to people around the world.

Here’s How Our LC's Support You:

  • Getting you started – with step-by-step guidance through the application process
  • Finding the right match – using hands-on screenings to find compatible pairs of families and students
  • Setting the stage – with an-person orientation for your family.
  • Providing support – with regular contact with both you and the school to make sure all is going well, plus being ready available to answer questions.
