WALES YFC’S GLOBE-TROTTERS ANNOUNCED

YFC

Wales YFC recently held two International Selection Days at the Wales YFC centre on the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells. Over the two days members from all over Wales took part in interviews to be in with a chance with travelling to various Countries on the Wales YFC International Programme.

The international programme is an important part of the organisations work and it aims to encourage members’ understanding of other cultures and gives them the opportunity to travel to different places and experience new activities. Members can travel as far afield as Canada or as close to home as the European Rally, which is being hosted this year by Wales YFC at the Discovery Centre in Margam Park. The programme also asks the YFC clubs in Wales and their members to host members from similar organisations over the summer months.

Mark Powell, Chairman of Wales YFC’s International Sub-Committee said;
“Traveling with Wales YFC and the International Programme is a once in a life time opportunity and extremely worthwhile for any member. The programme ensures that young people in rural areas can benefit from the valuable experience of travel and exchange visits with other young people from all over the world. The visits on offer are totally unique, and our objective is to give our members a special insight into the lives, work places, areas, cultures, agriculture and environment in a different country. Anyone that has travelled with Wales YFC will tell you that you learn about a new country and way of life by experiencing it! You will make friendships, links and contacts that will last you the rest of your life.”
