Area Representatives

International Student Support

An exchange program is a time of great experience and adventure for each student and host family involved. As an Area Representative for MyEducation (UK) you will work closely with your local students and families and become an integral part of their overseas experience. Your support and contact will make their experience more successful and you will guide them through their time together.

Our Area Representatives are adults who enjoy working with young people and families. You will have an interest in your local community and an eagerness to ensure that the students get the most from their time in their new home. Experience of working with children is valuable but not a requirement as common sense and a level head is just as important.

As an Area Representative you will be the local contact for the students and families that are assigned to you. You will offer support and guidance to all those involved in making the program a success. Behind you will be the MyEducation (UK) staff who will maintain contact with you and offer support whenever you need it to answer any question that you may have or resolve any issues that may occur.
