4-H Colorado International Programs
International 4-H Youth Exchange (IFYE) Representative
Participants, ages 19-30, visit a foreign country for three to six months. The delegate lives and works with host families, gaining a unique perspective about another culture (view the blog of one IFYE Representative who is currently in Switzerland). Representatives have the opportunity to visit countries in: Africa, Asia, Australia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Western Europe. Upon return to the U.S., the IFYE travels to Colorado communities to share experiences and broaden awareness. The Colorado 4-H Youth Fund offers two full scholarships each year (personal spending money excluded). Applications due October 1.
Incoming IFYE’s stay two or three weeks, with each of several host families, during their three-month stay in Colorado. They share information about their country, culture and the IFYE program with various community groups and travel throughout Colorado during their visit. Contact the 4-H International Programs office for more information.
