Bring the world into your home by hosting a YFU exchange student!
Being a host family is an exciting, unique and rewarding experience that brings the world right into your home. By sharing your everyday life with a young person from another country, you will learn about their culture, help your student experience our South African hospitality, and gain a new friend and family member for life!
YFU South Africa receives exchange students from Europe, North America, South America and Australia. They are carefully selected and thoroughly prepared for their exchange experience in our country.
The aim of the YFU hosting programme is to achieve full integration of the student into your family – not to become a guest in your home, but a family member as your own son, daughter, brother or sister. Your family can volunteer to host a student for the full year, a few months, or offer your assistance as a temporary family.

Open your home and heart to a YFU exchange student and make the world your home!
