Be an Area Representative for Gardiner Area High School!
By getting involved as an ASSE Area Representative, you will be making a difference in the world - one young person at a time. As an ASSE Area Representative, you’ll be that all-important point person for students placed in your area during their year abroad. Counselor, advocate and friend are just some of the roles you will play as you oversee the ASSE program in your area and help an international student get the most out of their year abroad. In addition, you’ll help teenagers in your own community become ASSE exchange students abroad. Opening up the world of international, experiential learning to students in your area is an important role of being an ASSE Area Representative.
As a trained ASSE Area Representative, you’ll receive on-going support from your ASSE Area Coordinator (Kaitlyn) and Regional Director (Holly) as you take on a variety of challenging roles! Not only will you help young people from your own community and around the world, you will also get to know better the families in your own area. In addition, you will expand your circle of community contacts as you establish relationships with local schools, civic groups, clubs and religious organizations.
While this is a volunteer position, a small stipend and bonus structure can be discussed upon hiring.
