Sweet Briar College JYF in Paris

Become a JYF Ambassador

“We do not learn from experience…
we learn from reflecting on experience.”
― John Dewey

When you return to your home college after studying in France with JYF, consider sharing your experience by being a JYF Ambassador to help us promote our program among your peers.


As a former JYF participant you have a unique perspective on and insights into the JYF in Paris program. Prospective study abroad students looking into programs truly want to hear about your stories, experiences and opinions to make their decision. You can be the voice of JYF to help us reach students at your institution for whom JYF could be a good study abroad fit, but who may not have heard about us otherwise.

A flexible and minimal commitment.

Let us know via this survey which of these options you want to help with.

Can JYF list you on the our website as a contact for student questions at your college/university?
