Host a YFU Exchange Student
Hosting a YFU international exchange student is an enriching experience for you and the entire family. By opening your home and heart to a student from overseas, you and your family will gain a new global perspective, many memories, and - quite possibly - a new family member for life!
Experiencing a global perspective is a family affair
At Youth For Understanding USA, we think the best reason to host an exchange student is the global education that it provides your family.
"We have loved each of our eight exchange students as our own children... and now we have sons and daughters around the globe!"
