EXPERIENCES OF THE OUTGOINGs
Ose Bastian , from Bredstedt (Schleswig-Hostein)
Country : USA, Missouri, 3 months (2022)
"Through the different host families, you got to know many facets of the country. Every single person was very friendly to me and tried to convey their way of life to me. What I liked best was a very spontaneous camping trip and looking for cows with them Quad on a farm. I am very happy that I was able to travel the USA as an IFYE"
Daniela Siehl , from Immenstedt (Schleswig-Holstein)
Country : USA, Kansas and Nebraska, 6 months (2019)
"During the 6 months in Kansas and Nebraska, I had seven incredibly great host families with whom I immediately felt at home. I was particularly fascinated by how different each region and family was. I can absolutely recommend the IFYE program and I hope so IFYE 2020 was an incredibly wonderful time."
Jan Bley , from Crawinkel (Thuringia)

Friederike Herbers , from Ahaus (Northern Westphalia)

Helena Oing , from Gronau-Epe (North Rhine-Westphalia)

Lisa Sawade , from Metzingen (Baden-Wü.)
Country: USA, Nebraska, 3 months (2018)
"The best thing about the IFYE program is the change between different families and therefore between different regions of the state. This gives you many different impressions of the country, culture and life. I had three great families with whom I got along really well and in whose companies I was involved. I was able to learn a lot and see a lot. It was a great time!"

Sabrina Mau , from Jestetten (Baden-Württemberg)

Paula Steilen , from Schwanewede (Lower Saxony)
