National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

Become a YFC Host

Every year, young people from across the world visit the UK as part of the YFC Travel programme. These visitors spend a week with YFC members, learning about life as a Young Farmer on the other side of the world.

Hosting an international exchangee can be just as much fun as travelling; all you need is a little bit of planning, teamwork and a taste for adventure!

What does hosting an exchangee involve?

If you choose to host an international exchangee, then they will stay at your home for a week and learn a little bit about life as a young farmer in the UK. But it’s not all down to you – hosting is a team effort and something your whole Club can get involved with.

You will have plenty of time before your visitor arrives to plan out the visit as a Club to make sure everyone has a brilliant week.

What does my Club get out of hosting an exchangee?

•    It’s a great project for your whole Club to get involved with together
•    Your members could learn a lot about other cultures and agriculture in another Country
•    This is a great chance to make new friends, and who knows you may even be invited to visit your exchangee in their home country
•    This could be the perfect opportunity to gain some publicity for your Club, local newspapers might be interested to know you have an exchangee visiting.

How can I get involved?
