Find your host country
YfU organizes exchange programs to foreign countries where you have the opportunity to get to know new cultures, new people, new language and learn about yourself. It helps you to travel, study and add some awesome experience to your CV (and to your life).
We believe that traveling around the world should not be hard. It is actually a good experience and it will benefit you in the long run. An exchange gives you unique perspective and knowledge of the world and how to engage in a foreign culture. It's a huge advantage when continuing your education or applying for a job.
We offer your child the journey of a lifetime. An experience that develops and enables young adults to make lifelong connections that will change the way they see the world.
YFU is with them every step of the way, from application to return, and helps them stay in touch with the international community long after returning home.
We create a safe, supportive environment in which to explore and gain a deeper understanding of different cultures.
Exchange is lifelong learning, giving increased independence and a better ability to relate to the unexpected of the participants. Exchange students are ultimately better decision makers, and their host families get a new and better feel for the world they could not otherwise have.
Being mostly run by volunteers, YFU believes in the power of people. As a volunteer you get to help the students who want to go on an exchange and a lot of different skills and competencies.
It is common to see YFUs be part of the association many years after they were in the exchange program. They still meet from time to time and keep in touch.
Youth For Understanding is one of the world’s oldest, largest and most respected intercultural exchange programs. More than 250,000 students and their host families have benefited from the support and expertise of YFU in more than 60 different countries.
YOUTH FOR UNDERSTANDING DENMARK is a self-governing, non-profit association based on volunteering and independent of political, religious and economic interests.
