Local Coordinators are our field representatives who support and keep the communication flowing between the Host Families, students, high schools and STS Foundation Headquarters. STS Foundation requires that Local Coordinators live within an hour of the student and host family.
Prior to the student’s arrival, Local Coordinators select, thoroughly screen, interview and orient new and renewing Host Families. During the program year, the Local Coordinators supports the student and host family by maintaining consistent and open communication; providing valuable information, advice and mediation throughout the program year.
Monthly contact by the Local Coordinator ensures that questions are being answered and concerns are being dealt with in a timely fashion. The Local Coordinator also maintains regular contact with the participating high school. Representatives must be 25 years or older.
