About

To all those outgoing and dedicated individuals, who seek to enhance cultural awareness and international exchange, here is an opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge to a good cause!Forte International Exchange Association is currently searching for representatives in your area, who are interested in volunteering their free time to making the international student exchange experience a positive one for all involved!

Forte International is a non-profit organization, based in the Washington, D.C. area, and designated by the State Department as a sponsor to student exchange programs.The basic responsibilities of a local rep are searching for loving families interested in hosting an exchange student, contacting local high schools to inquire about student enrollment policies, and supervising the student(s) during their stay in the United States.

Students between the ages of 15-18 arrive to the U.S. in August with medical insurance and their own spending money for personal expenses.We ask that our students be placed with loving host families, willing to provide room and board as well as treat the student as a member of their family.No experience is needed to be a local rep; as we have experienced area directors to provide training and continual support.

Local reps must be at least 21 years of age.The time commitment is fairly flexible, as we require local reps to contact host families and students at least twice a month either over the phone or in-person.Although this is a volunteer position, Forte International compensates our local reps for their hard work and dedication.We hope you will join us in the ambitious endeavor to enhance mutual understanding and forge friendships among the world’s youth.For more information on being a local representative, please visit our website at http://www.forteexchange.org, or call Heidi at 888-866-6869 x6 or hmorlock68@yahoo.com
