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.
If you want to pay off a large credit card balance, or go on vacation somewhere exotic next summer, or pay for a house renovation, then this volunteer position with a stipend would be perfect.
