Program Description:

Youth For Understanding USA's (YFU) high school study abroad program is an experience that will immerse you in the lives, language, cultures, and communities of a real family in one of more than 40 countries around the globe. YFU is a 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 on academic programs.

Students on a 3-2-1 program have the opportunity to experience the cultures of Serbia, Romania, and Bulgaria over the course of their six-week experience.
