Exchange with Youth For Understanding

Do you want to travel the world? Do you want to meet people from several different places around the globe? Maybe learn a new language? Or just explore a new culture or style of living? If you answered yes on any of the questions exchange i something for you!
YFU (Youth for Understanding) was formed in 1951 after the second world war, when Rachel Andresen started sending students from Germany to Michigan, for them to get a education there.
The organization has grown since and today YFU is one of the largest and most respected exchange organizations in the world that sends over 4500 students worldwide.

Youth for understanding only wants the best for its students and because its an organization based on volunteer work, you know that we only want the best for you!
