Global exchange empowers your students. The experience helps broaden horizons, builds bonds of friendship, and promotes greater understanding across cultures. Hosting a Youth For Understanding (YFU) international exchange student is an enriching experience for the entire family, school, and local community. Please encourage those you know who are excellent host family candidates to call 1.800.872.0200 and visit YFU online at https://www.yfuusa.org/host.
