"Youth For Understanding prepares young people for their responsibilities and opportunities in a changing, interdependent world."
Youth For Understanding USA is one of a worldwide network of Youth For Understanding partner organizations. We are a non-profit, volunteer-based, educational exchange program. We coordinate cultural exchange opportunities for international and American high school students that are centered on an educational and home-stay experience. Localized groups of volunteers and volunteer host families facilitate the experience, and are supported by a small staff that is organized on a district and nation-wide level.
