This April during its General Assembly, YFU Spain was admitted as the 30th Member Organisation of EEE-YFU! YFU Spain is one of the newest members of the international YFU community and sent its first three students abroad in the autumn of 2014. Constanza Niell Peña founded the new organisation, having been a form YFU exchange student from Argentina to Norway. Originally from Urugay and having lived in the United States and having extensive experience with intercultural exchanges with En Famille and Aventuro, Constanza was the perfect person to begin such an ambitious initiative.
YFU Spain is currently focusing on building a strong organisation with quality year programmes with a great volunteer team. They are looking to promote as many countries in the YFU network as possible. For for the 2015-2016 school year, there will be over 15 young Spaniards leaving with YFU with nearly 10 young people being welcomed in Spanish families from Germany and Australia. They will also be hosting volunteers from Finland, Germany, Slovakia, Argentina and Sweden!
