IFYE stands for International Farm Youth Exchange , which means international rural youth exchange . The
IFYE program is a multicultural exchange program of the 4-H clubs of
other countries (comparable to the German Landjugend) and the Verein Deutscher IFYE's e.V..
Germany has been a partner in the program since 1952. All participants in the program are called "IFYE's", as a universal description!
During the exchange, young adults spend up to 3 months in different countries around the world. The aim of the IFYE program is to promote international understanding and to give young people the opportunity to
- to get to know a different way of life,
- to become better informed about worldly affairs,
- to get to know yourself and your own environment better,
- to find out about other youth organizations,
- and improve their language and communication skills.
