Host an exchange student and change the world!

Youth for Understanding (YFU), one of the most well respected intercultural exchange programs, is currently looking for host families in your area that are willing to open their homes and hearts to high school students from around the world. Each student is excited to be immersed in American culture, and you could be a part of that experience!

Hosting is a fun and rewarding way for your family to learn first-hand about another country from a student who has grown up there. All International students are prepared to follow the family’s rules, they come insured and come with their own spending money. We ask that each host family provides a place for the student to live, three meals a day and transportation to and from school. YFU even provides extra volunteer support in the area for all the families and students.

You hold the key to the start of lifelong friendships! To learn more about hosting, visit our website: www.yfuusa.org or contact your local YFU Field Director Tchi Sogoyou today tsogoyou@yfu.org; 618-690-0755. Join the fun and make a difference! The deadline for school enrollment is fast approaching, so please act now.
