American Councils FLEX Students Lead GYSD in Eurasia
American Councils for International Education, YSA’s GYSD Regional Partner in Eastern Europe, run the FLEX program, an exchange program that brings young Eastern Europeans (ages 15-17) to the U.S. for a one-year student exchange. FLEX exchange students are required to do 40 hours of volunteer service while exchange students in the US. On their return home, they become alumni and all their community service is voluntary. As alumni, these young people make the choice to give to their communities and share the experiences they had in the US. To support their work, American Councils offers GYSD Matching Grants for alumni who are organizing GYSD events in their communities. This year, they are awarding $6,769.00 to 25 projects in 9 Eurasian countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine). The 25 selected projects have raised also $12,737.00 in donations and in-kind support from community partners and local businesses. To see these and other GYSD projects, browse the GYSD Map.
