Become a WEP Coordinator!
Coordinators are wonderful volunteers who provide local contact and support to exchange students and their host families in Australia.
Above all, coordinators support and care about their student’s progress and often build a lifelong bond and friendships with both the student and their host family. It is these wonderful relationships that makes coordinating a truly rewarding and fantastic experience.
