Youth for Understanding USA

YFU is a homestay program where you live with a host family, attend the local high school, and interact with new friends. You will understand the country and its people in a way that only someone who has lived there can!  You’ll benefit academically as you learn in a global setting, and gain knowledge through the unique strengths of your school abroad.

YFU offers more than 100 program choices to 40 countries and awards more than 300 scholarships each year. YFU looks for students who are flexible, have a spirit of adventure, and who will enjoy the challenge of adapting to new people in a new culture. There is a program perfect for you.

YFU summer programs offer you the opportunity to learn the culture like no tourist could.  Most YFU summer programs are traditional homestay programs, where you’ll live with a host family and participate in family activities throughout the summer.

Imagine spending the summer exploring the wonders of China with a local family, shopping for food in a marketplace in Greece, or finding your way to the beach in a sunny Spanish town. You’ll learn how another culture lives, works and learns from the inside.

Summer programs range from three to eight weeks.
