New coordinator at International Cultural Exchange Services

Apr 24, 2018

FAIRFIELD - International Cultural Exchange Services (ICES) welcomes Valerie Barnard as a new local coordinator. Barnard has lived in Fairfield for 23 years and held various jobs in the health field. She is excited for this new opportunity to work with international high school students and the local families that host them. She feels that having exchange students in our local schools and communities increase mutual understanding and improves relationships between countries. Barnard will be working with families and schools in Fairfield and in the surrounding area.

She  is currently looking for families that would like to host for the school year of 2018. Exchange students live as a member of the host family, not a guest or boarder.

Students have their own medical insurance and spending money to cover all personal expenses. Host families provide room & board and loving parental guidance to the student. As the Local Coordinator, Valerie is available to answer questions, give advice and provide general support to students and host families throughout the experience.
