FAIJU: An Assessment Center for Developing the Skills of Volunteers Working in International Youth Exchange
Kurz, Tom
Intercultural Education, v20 suppl S1-2 pS125-S132 2009
The three non-profit student exchange organizations AFS, Experiment and YFU, have been running a special assessment center for the development of skills necessary for volunteers working in international student exchange. This paper presents the goals and intentions behind this tool and also discusses the use of human resource development tools in youth exchange. The training of volunteers plays a significant role in all organizations, enabling volunteers to conduct the preparation of participants at a high level. The special assessment center presents a new way of ensuring quality. Participants are enabled to focus on their individual strengths and weaknesses by receiving expert advice during weekend-long training. (Contains 2 notes.)
