YFU USA is Seeking Host Families for Next School Year’s Exchange Students
Youth For Understanding USA (YFU USA) is seeking local host families to host high school exchange students for the next school year! Many of these students like Maximilian and Isabelle from Germany, Tanguy from France, and others are actively interested in outdoor activities like hiking, mountain-biking, mountain-climbing, skiing, and horseback riding.
Host families provide a place to live and three meals a day plus the encouragement, advice and love to help their new family member through a year in a new home. The students bring their own spending money and good health insurance plus the willingness to be a good family member, follow family rules and help out with family responsibilities. YFU provides local representatives who support the students and families to ensure a good experience for all involved.
Call your local Field Director for more information to see if this might be right for you and your family. You can request profiles of students with interests similar to your own. Contact Mila Nedeljkov at 240-235-2102x2506 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information please visit Youth For Understanding USA on our website atwww.yfu-usa.org where families and volunteers can learn more about YFU USA programs and fill out an on-line application. YFU is a 501(c) (3) non-profit international exchange program celebrating it’s 60th anniversary this year!
American students will also find information there about how they can become a YFU USA exchange student for a summer, semester, or school year. YFU offers more than 100 programs to over 35 countries; including a 13th Year Abroad program for recently graduated high school students. YFU USA awards more than 300 scholarships each year. Adult volunteers are also sought who can serve as the primary YFU contact within the community. Volunteers support students, families, programs and other volunteers in a wide variety of ways.
