Going abroad

Our mission is to prepare young people for their responsibilities and opportunities in a changing and interdependent world.

With the support of our network of more than 40 national YFU organizations and volunteer groups around the world, YFU programmes have a reputation of maintaining the highest quality in the field of international exchange. We strongly believe that our largest opportunity to change the world is through instilling the insights, knowledge and understanding new generations need to succeed in an interdependent and multicultural world.

Exchange can open your eyes to different possibilities for further study or for future employment as well as giving you a unique experience that you cannot have at any other time in your life with memories and new friends that last a lifetime.

Thousands of learners around the world, their families, host families and other volunteers have joined us. Why donĀ“t you?

The world out there just might amaze you!
