Community Coordinator Application

The PAX community coordinator is an independent contractor who represents the PAX program in their local community. Working directly with a regional director in the national office, the community coordinator helps to facilitate the placement and supervision of exchange students in high schools and with host families.

Please note, before any candidate is hired as a community coordinator:

  • A criminal background check must be completed. You will be provided with instructions once the interview process is underway.
  • Three online training modules must be completed. This will be done with the support of the regional director. This training ensures that community coordinators are well-versed in PAX practices and procedures as well as U.S. Department of State regulations.

This application, in lieu of your resume, serves as your expression of interest and is the first step in the process for those aspiring to become a PAX community coordinator. Qualified applicants will be contacted for a telephone interview within two weeks.
