- Program Description:
Youth For Understanding USA's (YFU) high school study abroad program is an experience that will immerse you in the lives, languages, cultures, and communities of a real family in one of more than 40 countries around the globe. YFU is homestay experience where you live with a carefully selected host family who has agreed to open their home and their hearts to you---providing room, board, and a caring home. You'll gain a global family, make new friends, and even attend a new school.
The best way to really know Australia, beyond kangaroos, koalas, and "the land down under" is to experience it first hand. Participating in a YFU exchange to Australia is a dinky-di (genuine) experience that tourists can't replicate.
YFU programs make a lasting, life-changing impact on young people. YFU students return as young adults---more independent, competent, and confident---with a deeper understanding of their family and country. They also discover that the YFU experience opens doors for many years to come, enhancing educational and professional opportunities.
- Setting Description:
- The best way to get to know the land "Down Under" is to experience it firsthand. See signs along the roadside warning of a nearby kangaroo crossing and learn about the Great Barrier Reef. Be in awe of the vastness of the Outback and have what the Australians call a dinky-di (genuine) experience.
