Terms and Compensation:
A coordinator is either an individual, a small organization or a much bigger structure. They all have in common that they send us teenagers/families on a commission basis. We obtain 95% of our business through coordinators of all types and sizes, and the commission rate can vary from 60% for individuals to 80% for professional agencies and even more for those who send 50 teens or more per year. Typical coordinators are young traveling students or purely scholastic agencies, but anyone with an actionable network and contact list is welcome to join our team if they can come up with the goods!
If you are an individual, please do not consider this invitation to join us as a job application as you will be paid entirely on a commission basis and this will not give you sufficient income to live on unless you send a large number of teens.
Should you be interested in becoming a coordinator, please reach out to Laure Colombier by e-mail or by phone at +33 6 60 65 50 89.
