Be a JYF Ambassador

“We do not learn from experience… we learn from reflecting on experience.” — John Dewey

Help JYF by sharing your experience as a JYF Ambassador. As a former JYF participant you have a unique perspective on and insights into the JYF in Paris program. You can help a prospective student by sharing your stories and experiences. Since JYF cannot be present on every campus, you can help us reach students at your institution for whom JYF could be a good study abroad fit, but who may not have heard about us otherwise.

How can you help?

  • Assist JYF at your college/university’s study abroad fair
  • Organize an event(s) on your campus (host an info session, partner with your school’s French Club on a crêpe event, French movie night, etc.)
  • Write a blog post about your experience for Le Blog
  • Coordinate a presentation to a French class
  • Create a video about your experience for fellow students
  • Be profiled on the JYF website
  • Propose an activity!
  • A flexible and minimal commitment

Tell us how you can help.

What’s in it for you?

  • Reflect on your experience in Paris while helping others plan theirs
  • Share your stories, enthusiasm, and inspiration with other students
  • Enhance your resume with leadership, communication and programming skills
  • JYF reimburses your expenses to organize events
  • Make new friends and have fun!
  • Get a cool JYF T-shirt!
