Part-time Employment Opportunity
Dear Peace Corps Friends,
AYUSA International is a non-profit high school foreign exchange student organization. We welcome teenagers from over 60 countries worldwide and provide host family placement and ongoing supervision for 5 and 10 month academic programs. We are a community of citizens who believe it is our privilege and our greatest responsibility to help create a worldwide family who will embrace our children with an accepting, open heart wherever they choose to live.
As Peace Corps alumni, we know you share this vision and we invite you to apply for the position of Community Representative. The ideal candidate should enjoy teenagers, have a strong desire to communicate cross-culturally and feel comfortable networking in the community. Basic responsibilities include recruiting and interviewing host families, providing ongoing support to families and students and maintaining professional relationships with local high schools.
This position pays a stipend per student as well as travel incentives, leadership enhancement opportunities, and most of all, a chance to promote a more peaceful world for our youth to inherit.
Full training and ongoing support is provided through one of several branch offices located in the Maryland region. Please apply to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone toll-free 1-888-552-9872.

Dear Retired Volunteer Peace Corps,
I am writing you to introduce volunteer opportunities at the ASPECT Foundation student exchange
program. I am the local coordinator for ASPECT Foundation students and host families.
Here are some important facts about ASPECT Foundation:
A non-profit organization founded in 1985
Offers affordable study-abroad opportunities to students from more than 30 countries
Offers American teens the opportunity to live abroad with host families in ten different countries
Provides local, regional and national support to host families, students and school officials
Sponsors only academic exchanges (5-10 months), not short-term vacation travel
Provides clear, strict rules for students and families to ensure a successful exchange
Provides 24-hour support on a toll-free line: 800-US YOUTH
Surveys all participants twice a year and strives for excellence in service to school officials, families and students
Designated by the US Government as an official exchange visitor program
Granted full listing for the 2002-2003 school year by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel
When you welcome an international exchange student to your homes, you not only give a young person the opportunity to learn about the United States first-hand; you also give our American youth exposure to different cultures and different ways of thinking. In a very positive way, you contribute to the building of a more interdependent and peaceful world.
I would like the opportunity to meet with you and share further the benefits of bringing the world into your home. In the meantime, please feel free to call me at 571-242-1309 or 703-437-5680 if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Dan L. Pe
