A non-profit international educational organization with partners in more than 60 different countries, Youth For Understanding is one of the world’s oldest, largest and most respected intercultural exchange programs. More than 275,000 students and their host families have benefited from the support and expertise of YFU. The YFU global network is united by the belief that full cultural immersion is the most effective means to gain the skills needed to thrive in an increasingly multicultural, interconnected and competitive global society. The global YFU network is united by the belief that curiosity about the world expands cultural awareness and acceptance of other ways to live, which leads to broader perspective and greater understanding. Selected to administer more government and corporate scholarships than any other high school exchange program, YFU has remained a trusted leader of intercultural exchange programs since 1951 because of its commitment to safety, reputation for quality, and exceptional support services.
YFU's international exchange programs offer students the opportunity to see the world upload on our outbound study abroad programs, and for families to bring the world into their home by hosting an inbound international student. By hosting, you can give your family authentic exposure to not only a specific culture and language, but also broad, global thinking and international perspective! We're looking to send American homeschooled students abroad, as well as looking for host families to welcome international students into their home.
