MARINETTE — World Heritage International Student Exchange Program, a non-profit, public benefit organization, affiliated with and operated under the sponsorship of ASSE International, is seeking representatives to work with volunteer host families and international exchange students in the community.
World Heritage provides academic year and semester exchange programs in the United States for high school students around the world, 15 to 18 years old, who have passed a series of academic and character requirements.
The primary goal of the program is to contribute to international understanding by enabling students to learn about other languages and cultures through active participation in family, school and community life.
Area representatives recruit and screen prospective host families, supervise the exchange students in their community throughout the year, and interview American students who wish to spend a semester, year or summer abroad. The representatives, who form the cornerstone of the organization, are compensated based on the number of students they are supervising, including opportunities to earn bonuses.
For more information or to become an area representative, persons may call the World Heritage Office at 1-800-888-9040; email at info@world-heritage.org or visit www.world-heritage.org.
