Most of our local area representatives say they would still volunteer as an Area Representative even if a stipend wasn't provided because they enjoy it so much. As a program we want to thank our Area Rep volunteers for their commitment to the program and so a stipend is provided as a big "thank you" for helping us do what we do. We're a team, giving teens from all over the world a fantastic opportunity through our non-profit program.
The stipend is $700 - $1050 per student paid out over the space of the academic year. The bonus is up to $450 per student depending on when the student was placed and how many students you have in your area.
You've already shown a huge commitment to cultural exchange by hosting, you'll be continuing to give teens from all over the world the experience of a lifetime, just in a different way!
