Want to learn more about Germany? Host an exchange student!

Youth For Understanding is welcoming 55 international exchange students to the Mid Atlantic this summer. Each of these wonderful young boys and girls is looking for a warm and welcoming family like yours to host them for this upcoming school year. Will it be yours?

Our students come fully ensured and have their own pocket money! “Hosting is a rewarding experience like no other. There is much to be learned from other cultures, and by sharing our own we allow understating, communication and peace to grow.”  

Welcome an exchange student into your home; start your host family application today: https://yfuusa.org/ ! We have many students to choose from. Read more on each student on our blog: http://yfusedistrict.wordpress.com/author/youthforunderstanding/


15 years old male from Germany


School, outdoor activities and family keep Jan busy. He enjoys team sports and would like to play some in the US – soccer, which he has played for several years or others. Jan also participates in geo-caching with his family. He lives in a small village, quite close to his grandmother, for whom he often performs small chores such as yard work or helping around the house. At home, he also babysits his younger sister as well. Jan is used to a curfew, checking in and some limitations on computer use. Jan is active in school too. Although quiet, he is a class representative and a math tutor. He belongs to a project group which takes part in science competitions and has taken special science courses. Recently Jan went to Scandinavia in a class studying the land, people and culture. But Jan is not all work. He goes to movies, plays computer games, dances and “just hangs out with friends.” He likes to travel and swim. Jan wants to be a real part of your family: he feels that taking part in his Host’s daily life will be his most valuable experience as an exchange student.
