About South Africa

Coming to South Africa on an exchange program or for an internship with YFU has all the ingredients of providing you with one of the most remarkable experiences of your life!

It is a country and nation that will leave you with a smile on your face, but also the odd tear – especially when saying good bye. It is stunningly beautiful with some of the earth’s most majestic nature and friendliest people, yet at the same time also wounded by some harsh realities such as poverty in many communities.

YFU South Africa attempts to offer a program for international incoming students that makes them aware of all the aspects of our unique country.
