About

Looking for part-time work that changes lives? Fascinated by other cultures? Established in your community? Become a Local Representative with Nacel Open Door and connect international students with Host Families and High Schools in your area.

Local Representatives arrange home stays for international students by actively recruiting volunteer Host Families, matching each family with an international student, and enrolling the student in a local high school. Local Representatives maintain regular contact with students, families, and schools throughout the student’s stay and provide additional support and guidance.

Local Representatives must be well-connected within their local community and able to create and nurture long-term relationships with Host Families and school administrators. Successful Local Representatives are communicative, dependable, open-minded, organized, self-motivated, and perseverant initiative-takers when recruiting new Host Families and High Schools.

For someone looking for a passion project with a stipend, this is a highly rewarding enterprise. The workload is flexible and self-managed. Payment is commission-based according to the number of students placed. Online certification and training is provided by the National Office, and mentorship is provided by a Regional Coordinator.

Nacel Open Door, Inc. is a nonprofit organization specializing in international education and cultural exchanges. Each year, Nacel Open Door welcomes more than 2,000 international high school students from nearly 30 countries to the United States. Host Families and Local Representatives share the "American experience" with these students who are interested in improving their English and developing themselves as citizens of the world.
