Where Else Can You Find a Part-Time Job that Makes You Feel So Good?
Intro:PEACE is a Christian oriented student exchange program established in 1988. We are currently hiring and training U.S. Representatives to assist in the placement of exchange students with host families.
Responsibilities: This job consists of the following Duties...
Interviewing and evaluating prospective host families in the homes where our exchange students would be living for the next academic year. Preset interviews are normally conducted during the evenings and on weekends.
Assist with our outreach program by visiting schools and churches to promote the program.
Publicizing our need for host families within your own community by networking through loal resources and online social networking sites.
Strengthening our program's support services by being a friend, advocate and counselor to the students and families in your immediate area and providing monitoring between the student and the home office.
Helping other representatives organize regional activities for students.
Expanding and building our outbound program to place U.S. high school students in foreign country schools.
Compensation: Representatives are paid for all interviews for successful recruiting and for school presentations. Training and all materials and supplies are free to representatives. Compensation is made for mileage and telephone calls to host families and exchange students as well. Checks are issued for the pay week following the date the paperwork reaches the home office and is sent directly to our accountant.
Keeping In Touch: Representatives need either an email address or fax number to facilitate the quickest possible communication between themselves and the home office. Forms are readable in Adobe Acrobat, if you do not have it, please download the program from the link at the bottom of the Applications and Forms page of this website by clicking here.
Qualifications: Enthusiasm and a sincere interest in helping to fulfill goals are characteristic of our most successful representatives. Being able to feel at ease and to establish a good rapport with people in general is another common bond they all share. Other than that, our representatives come from all walks of life. Certainly people who have formerly hosted exchange students from our organization or another program can bring an extra dimension of understanding to this position. We also encourage former exchange students to apply. Sales or marketing experience may be an advantage- especially for those who have had the experience of promoting concepts and ideas, rather than products. Regardless of peoples' ages or occupations, we at PEACE can't overemphasize enough the importance of a candidate's interpersonal skills and strong motivation to help further PEACE's mission as the most important factors in our selection process.
Service Areas: Territories will usually include the representative's own county and travel within about 20 to 25 mile radius of home, depending more or less upon our coverage needs. PEACE is the only foreign exchange student program with international headquarters in Pennsylvania and the majority of our placements are made within the state.
There is a need for representatives who live in or can travel to the border areas of adjacent states where we also place students. Therefore, a valid driver's license and reliable transportation are necessary job tools.
