Yaroslavl Exeter Friendship Society

About Us

In 1989 the official Twinning Charter was signed by the Mayors of Yaroslavl and Exeter and was set up. The partner organization in England - Exeter Yaroslavl Twinning Association - was formed two years before, in 1987.

The twinning Societies in Yaroslavl and Exeter are voluntary organizations, which pursue the common aim - to force links of all kinds between the two cities, to promote mutual understanding, friendship and trust.

YEFS involves people of Yaroslavl and the Yaroslavl Region from all walks of life - teachers, doctors, students, architects, engineers, artists, musicians, library workers, businessmen, schoolchildren and many others.

The activities of the YEFS are various and include annual exchange groups, cultural events aimed at spreading knowledge about British and Russian culture and way of life, individual projects and programmes, Yaroslavl - Exeter joint charity work in the welfare sphere.

Groups from Exeter are hosted by the families and take part in cultural programmes including excursions, visiting museums and theatres, picnics, informal parties, trips to various towns in the Yaroslavl Region.

Yaroslavl visitors enjoy their time in Exeter as they are given an opporhrnity to see as much of Devon as possible and immerse in the English language and culture.

Schoolchildren of Yaroslavl are actively involved in the contests of creative projects and interschool competitions.
