CSFES Norway is the result of an unfortunate student exchange experience. Not mine, but my child’s.
I was upset and started out writing about that experience and dug up stories about other unfortunate exchanges. Soon after, information was added about regulations in Norway and the US. As time has passed, the blog has changed.
CSFES Norway is connected to CSFES (Committee for the Safety of Foreign Exchange Students) in the US. Danielle Grijalva is the founder of the organization and works towards the safety of exchange students who come to and travel from USA. My intention was to help students traveling from and to Norway. At times students/their parents contact me for information, a listening eye or assistance with a conflict.
