History of YFU CZ
YFU Czech Republic was estabilished in the year 2006. Since that time a large number of Czech students went for a year program abroad and many foreign students came to Czech Republic to spend their program there. Volunteers of YFU CZ are mainly previous exchange students, who know very well how the program works. As exchange student coming to Czech Republic, you can expect to be frequently in touch with our volunteers.
The structure of YFU CZ is similar to other YFU organizations. The leadership is represented by the board, which consists of founding members of YFU CZ. The board decides about strategic plans of the organization, about new policies and they also are supervising the activities. Board members also participate on seminars and other activities.
During your stay, you will meet YFU staff. At the office, there are 4 employees - National Director, Outbound Coordinator, Inbound Coordinator and Campaign Coordinator. They mainly coordinate volunteers and monitor their activities, but on many seminars they also work as group leaders and trainers. Every year, YFU Czech Republic also invites one foreign volunteer for an internship. This year, it's Kaja from Serbia, who's staying in Prague from September 2017.
Each year we host around 15 students from all around the world. For sure, you will get to know all of the students coming to the Czech Republic. This makes the program unique, because you will feel that YFU people are your second family. Students from following countries came to Czech Republic so far:
