Youth For Understanding USA (YFU) is running short term programs for middle and high school students from around the world, with a focus on STEM. This is a support allowance-funded program, coordinated through YFU partners. During their two to three-week stay in the US, the students engage in English Language classes, educational activities, and a few social and cultural activities. They are placed with volunteer host families, who invite the students to be a part of their family for these few weeks. The students make ever-lasting bonds with other students, their host families, the volunteers, and the employees and contractors that work with them.

 The program runs from Saturday, January 26 to Saturday, February 8, 2019.
