Youth exchanges across national boundaries can be powerful learning experiences. Both 4-H and FFA have experimented with different types of group exchanges. This article reviews the tour group model, the work team model, the 4-H ambassador model, and an improved model developed between 1991 and 1993 through a W.K. Kellogg funded project. Through collaborative planning, implementation, and evaluation between Land Grant institutions in the United States and partner universities in Mexico, this new model was developed to strengthen the educational value of youth exchanges and to give participants experience in community development.
