Support from individuals, corporations and foundations help YFU advance cultural understanding, mutual respect and social responsibility through a variety of high-quality educational exchange programs. International exchange provides students with a cross-cultural understanding that increases communication skills, enhances self-confidence, expands foreign language proficiency, and fosters greater tolerance and international awareness. An investment in YFU impacts thousands of youth, families and communities across the globe – today, tomorrow and for years to come.
YFU depends on charitable giving to our Annual Fund as well as important scholarship programs designed to provide opportunities for students worldwide to participate in YFU programs.
