Youth For Understanding International Exchange Summer Programs

 

Overview

YFU's summer sessions allow students to live in and experience another culture while participating in intensive language study, journey or discovery programs. Not all programs are academic in nature, but many of them have a significant classroom component. Students at all locations embark on trips and engage in recreational activities while living with a host family.
