As an independent contractor working part-time, you earn stipends (taxes not withheld). You can earn up to $1,000 for each exchange student that you place with a host family and monitor throughout the year. Stipends are split into four payments: 1) at the time of placement after the LC has secured a school opening and found a host family, 2) in the fall 3) in the winter and 4) after the student has left the program.

Attend Annual Conferences in exciting domestic and international locations around the world.
