First entry, what is it all about? What YFU, why and when?
This BLOGG will contain much information on YFU, Youth for Understanding, exchange programs in different countries. I feel that much more information should be given on the possibly negative issues that seems to be happening every year for ex. in Chile, mostly due to bad local work on selecting the families and the schools. Then on the otherhand nobody seems to take the exchange students for their words and situations really get bad before anything is done, if eventually is. We have very much really negative experience about students living in Chile but anyone who has positive experiences can join in as well. We start with Chile and USA so anyone who has knowledge about these issues can send my an email to my adress at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to gather information, select what we print and help people if they ask us to. After our experiences we feel that no one should be left alone. Most text will be in English, but some text can be in Swedish, Spanish and Finnish also. If someone wants to tell us about other organisations we can also start new blogs that takes about 5 minutes. Help us to know more and we will try to help you solve your problems!
