Share your Home, Share the World! Host an Exchange Student for 3 Weeks!

Youth for Understanding (YFU) is one of the world's largest and most respected international exchange programs!

Help us welcome the world home by hosting a young person for an academic school year or semester. A YFU exchange student becomes a member of your family, participates in family activities, shares in home responsibilities, and provides your family with an international friendship that can last a lifetime!

Through this experience, everyday activities take on a new and exciting twist. Hosting a student from abroad will broaden your entire perspective on the world. It's a great educational opportunity for the whole family and a lot of fun, too!

YFU international exchange students are carefully-selected, chosen based on their academic excellence and teacher recommendations. They have studied English and many have even received scholarships! Your international son or daughter will be between 15-18 years of age and will come from one of over 60 countries that partner with YFU!

More information about hosting a YFU student can be found at http://yfuusa.org/host-families.php If you’re interested, please begin the process by filling out a host family application online or send us an email expressing your interest.
