Join an international family when you open your home and heart to a Youth For Understanding (YFU) exchange student. YFU host families share their traditions, holidays, and customs with their international student, offering their own unique version of the American experience.

As a YFU Host Family, be prepared to enhance global understanding, increase cultural awareness, gain a lifetime of memories and a new family member for life. YFU students are arriving soon from 70+ countries and speak English, have their own spending money and insurance and are carefully selected based on academics and recommendations.

YFU welcomes families of all backgrounds, whether youメre an empty-nester, have children in the home, or are a same-sex couple. However your family is made, our students look forward to meeting you. YFU is here to support your family every step of the way with group orientations, trained and dedicated local volunteers and 24-hour professional support staff. With over 65 years of experience, students and families around the world trust YFU because of our reputation for quality, high safety standards, and strong support network.

This opportunity is available to families nationwide.
