Local Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 10, 2017
I enjoy meeting potential host families and working with exchange students. The training I've attended has been very helpful and motivated me to do more within the company. Finding host families who are willing to volunteer to host can be challenging. I'd love to see CCI Greenheart invest more in promotional materials so we could receive more referrals via phone/website.
free training, easy to access help from Regional Manager/Director
Activities Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 2, 2017
It was a English Immersion camp, so it was go-go from dawn till dusk. Compensation was very fair. Learned a lot about co-worker communication and conflict management strategies, and how to lead a large group of individuals who do not fluently speak my language. Hardest part: being on duty 27/7 for three weeks. Best: Getting to know the students.
company paid for all excursion I took with the students and all the art supplies I bought
Local Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 17, 2016
I find homes for students from other countries to continue their education in the United States. I have learned about different cultures. This is an independent job with the help if needed from regional coordinators. The hardest part of this job is to find host families that would like to open their home for these students for a whole school year. The most enjoyable part of this job is the relationships that are built between everyone and to watch transfirmation of the cultural differences that everyone overcomes while working together.

Local Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 25, 2013
This job has taught me how to have conversations, on the phone and in person, with people I have never met. I have learned how to resolve conflicts that arise between families, students, and schools. Being a Local Coordinator requires me to read and interpret the thoughts and actions of people with different cultural backgrounds, accept them as they are, and help host families to see and accept these cultural differences. I have learned to be a better communicator and a better public speaker in small group settings. I have managed up to five families with their students at one time: acquiring and coordinating the proper paperwork; logging in contact information on the company database; maintaining contact with students, families, and schools; maintaining daily contact with the Chicago office via email and phone. This job allows me flexibility with my growing family, rewards me with multicultural opportunities, and gives me the chance to help students from around the world to achieve their dreams. The hardest part of this job is having to move a student to a new home because of personality conflict, or having to put a student on probation due to poor school or attitude performance.
