YFU helps you change the world!

Join a vibrant Youth For Understanding (YFU) community of volunteers, families and international students as a YFU Host Family (nationwide). With more than 60 years of experience, students and families around the world trust YFU because of its reputation for quality, high safety standards, and strong support network. Share your family traditions - welcome an eager international teenager ready to experience American culture, learn about social responsibility, and build interpersonal bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime. As a YFU host family you can make dreams come true for one of this year’s almost 2000 International Students traveling here this summer from 60 countries around the world.

As a YFU Host Family your family will:

·         Gain a global perspective

·         Learn about other cultures

·         Gain a lifetime of memories and most likely a family member for life.

Can't speak another language? No problem, our students speak English and are carefully selected based on academics and recommendations. All kinds of American families make great YFU Host Families, yours will too. Our students are as diverse as our host families and look forward to meeting you.

YFU is here to support your family every step-of-the-way - with handbooks, group orientations, trained local volunteers and a dedicated professional support staff.

We have many students to choose from. Read more on each student on our blog: http://yfusedistrict.wordpress.com. Learn more www.yfuusa.org, or contact YFU’s local Field Director, Tchi Sogoyou at 618-690-0755. Or via e-mail at tsogoyou@yfu.org.
