Juliette Van de Geer

Since graduating in 2006, Juliette has worked at the Center for International Educational Exchange (CIEE), based in Portland, ME. She has held several different positions within the organization and is currently the Director of Grant Programs.


In this capacity, Juliette works with Department of State, fully-funded scholarship students, who participate in exchange programs with a J1 visa. These youth ambassadors are participants of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program (CBYX), Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Program, and the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange & Study (YES) Program.


During her degree program at CIE she was a Graduate Fellow at the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding and also a Program Manager at the Center for Human Development,


Before coming to CIE, Juliette was a Peace Corps volunteer working with Youth and Families at Risk in Pujili, Ecuador.  I went to visit my host family in Ecuador last November and it was the first time I had been back since 2002. It was an incredible visit and amazing to be "home" once again.


My degree at CIE provided a solid foundation in writing, evaluation, and a wonderful network of colleagues which has helped me on a daily basis in my current profession.


Juliette lives in Maine with her husband Joe and their two children, Josiah and Olive.[11-20]
