About IFYE

State Contacts


IFYE State Contacts support the State Coordinator, Inbound and Outbound Representatives, and the state IFYE alumni association (where there is one). If your state does not currently have a state association with at least one officer, the State Contact may assist the IFYE Association of the USA, Inc. (National Program Director, Board of Directors, and/or Board Committees).

If a state has an IFYE Association, it is noted with asterisk (*).

If your state does not have a state contact listed below, please contact the IFYE President, Carolyn Seymour Hansen.
