Alumni

What did you discover about yourself during your YFU exchange? Confidence? Courage? Maybe even a new perspective? Your exchange experience changed you, shaped you and made you the person you are today. YFU is more than an intercultural exchange, it’s a learning experience of a lifetime. 

Share Your Story

As a YFU alumni, your words are stronger than anyone’s. Your story will help a student decide whether he or she wants to study abroad and experience a life-changing global exchange. Upload your exchange pictures and share your story with a student who may want to follow in your footsteps.

YFU is a program that lasts a lifetime. That’s why we’d love to stay in touch with you. Please email alumni@yfu.org to ensure that you are receiving alumni news, or with any questions or comments you may have.

Share Your Home

Spending time abroad as an exchange student gave you a unique opportunity for self-discovery. Now is your opportunity to pay the YFU experience forward. Open your home and heart to host an international student. Families of all shapes and sizes can host YFU students into their homes for three months, six months or the entire academic year. Meet unplaced students in your area. As rewarding as your exchange experience was, being a host is equally as rewarding for your entire family.

Share Your World

Continue your global experience as a YFU volunteer.  As a YFU volunteer you can apply your experience while building friendships with other volunteers, alumni and staff. YFU USA also has internship opportunities available with preference given to YFU alumni.

Understanding moments

Based on Alumni feedback, YFU is moving forward, changing The Light into a bimonthly e-newsletter. The newsletter will be entitled Understanding Moments, and will continue to feature alumni stories but in a more easily digestible format. Email alumni@yfu.org to be added to the distribution list!
