Click here “ Background to the AGYI ” or see page 53. The purpose of the manual is to provide useful information and guidance for exchange practitioners, stakeholders and roleplayers to improve the quality of youth exchange and lead to responsible growth in the sector. It is recognized that exchange is a broad and diverse sector and it is unlikely that one Guideline will cover every aspect of every type of exchange. The Guideline will provide useful insights into key considerations for most forms of exchange as it looks at operational, logistical and legislative aspects for the sector. Some aspects may be more relevant to certain exchanges than others, legislation is with reference to South Africa and SADC partners should cross-reference their laws for applicabaility and some sections may be speak strongly to your operational needs and interests while others may not.
