The Young Ambassadors will be hosted in the homes of 41 Club Members to ensure that the objectives of the program are achieved. It is preferable, but not compulsory that the guests stay with hosts who have children in similar age groups as the visitors. The children of 41 Club hosts should be encouraged to spend time with visitors, involve them into their day-to day activities and as far possible take charge of their guest during their visit.
The children/youngsters should, as far as possible, travel in the host country in a group ( the maximal number of Young Ambassadors will be defined with the host country but it will not more 13 for one group ) ; a stay of 4 days in each town would be the ideal duration, if possible, the Young Ambassadors should be hosted singly in each home.
All candidates must be covered under a medical (health) insurance policy for the duration of their stay abroad.
On their return, the participants are requested to submit a written report with one or two photos to the National 41 magazine “The Hinge“ (copy to the host´s country) and to the journal of his own country.
The participant has to pay his own flight-ticket and a “Tour fee” which will cover the costs of transports in the hosting country. The Tour fee is fixed by the hosting association and may differ from tour to tour. Each candidate has to pay an “Administration fee” to the account of the YAP-Exchange Association in time before the tour starts. The Ad.fee is fixed with 50,- €.
The stays and activities are free and seen as part of a service to their guests by the hosting clubs. Some national associations pay a little contribution to the costs of the hosting clubs.
