Ever thought of hosting an international exchange student? Sharing your daily life with a teenager from another culture is a rich and rewarding experience. Each year over 2,000 high school students from over 60 countries become cherished members of households just like yours with Youth For Understanding USA (YFU USA).
All kinds of families can host— two-parent households with children of all ages, single-parent families, families with adopted children, foster parents, as well as people without children. One of the most important requirements of hosting a YFU student is being excited to share your life with a young person, while also providing care and support along the way.
YFU students arrive ready to participate in your family, bringing with them incredible stories, an interest in experiencing American culture, and a new perspective. Connect your family to the world by welcoming one of our students into your home!
Parents, students, and schools trust YFU USA because of the reputation for quality, high-safety standards and our strong support network. Hosting an exchange student is a life-changing experience for not only your family, but also for your relatives, friends, and community.
