The Area Representative role is done from home and out in your local community. Reps attend local events and arrange activities to promote ISE cultural exchange at their convenience. When supervising a student, reps are required to make bi-monthly in-person visits to each student while maintaining contact via phone/text at least once every month. The position is flexible and can range from a few hours per week to a totally new lifestyle – you decide!

Although the position may be remote, you will have plenty of places to receive support and guidance from. Each Area Representative reports into a local regional manager who provides guidance and training. Additional training and supports is also provided from our home office via various online and in-person resources.
