A valeuable experience
Join us in The VALE
The target group of the VALE is volunteer leaders with a YFU background. The leadership experience can be varied, however, and does not necessarily have to come from YFU. The more varied the participants’ leadership background, the more diverse the experiences and contributions. Therefore, the course strives to have a diverse applicant pool and to have a balanced group of participants in terms of gender, background, and experiences.
Why is it worth it?
- It is organized solely by volunteers for volunteers: from concept to completion!
- You will gain a deeper knowledge of yourself both as a leader and in everyday life!
- You’ll get to know a group of amazing young leaders from all over Europe!
- A great experience to put on the CV – and trust us, we will write an amazing letter of recommendation if needed
- It’s a one of a kind – we will go the extra mile!
Where you come from
*your country of residence during the course, not nationality.
If you reside in a purple country, your national YFU has supported this project and secured a spot for one or several volunteers from their country.
If you reside in a blue country, you are eligible for a wildcard spot. There are only a few of those depending on our funding, so make sure your application is top notch!
If you fit the participant profile but live in a gray country – don’t hesitate to reach out regardless!
