Youth For Understanding Southeast District

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 27, 2014, 3:55 PM

Description

Mission: YFU advances intercultural understanding, mutual respect and understanding through educational exchanges for youth, families and communities.

Description: Youth For Understanding offers youth exchange programs, students ages 15-19 from around the world live with a volunteer host family, immerse themselves in the local culture and form friendships that bring countries together. As these young people discover new worlds and become part of a community in another country, they not only learn about another culture and language, they also gain perspective on the world and develop a stronger sense of self.

YFU USA volunteers are typically the primary YFU contact within the community. Volunteers support students, families, programs, and other volunteers in a wide variety of ways. From conducting student orientations to making classroom presentations, problem solving with international students and their host families to arranging social activities, there is truly a place for everyone with YFU USA. Whether you are a returned exchange alumnus, a parent, a retired person, or a college student - we welcome people of all backgrounds to work with us. Whatever your skills and interests are, there is a volunteer opportunity to match them!

If you don't see a current opportunity listed, please contact us, as we are always accepting volunteer applications.
