Summer Cultural and Study Tours to US

Spend your summer in a High School in US with YFU's cultural study tours. International students can travel to US and spend two weeks with fellow classmates from around the world. 

Interested in US culture and language? Curious about what American Independence Day celebrations (and fireworks!) are like?  This summer, travel to the US and join fellow classmates ages 13-18 from around the world for a two-week life-changing experience! 

Spend two weeks in the US next summer: July 1 through July 16, 2017

Are you ready to better your English skills and have a truly American experience?  YFU’s Summer Cultural and Study Tours students receive English language instruction three days per week and participate in visits to cultural and community sites and events chaperoned by YFU volunteers throughout their stay. Weekends and the 4th of July holiday (American Independence Day) are dedicated to spending time with your YFU host family.

Participants should be eager to increase their English proficiency, make friends, and contribute to American family life. 


Students may choose from one of the following US cities:

  • Washington, DC
  • Denver, CO
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • St. Louis, MO
  • San Antonio, TX (Basketball Theme)

Please Note:  These programs will have minimum participant requirements and the programs may be cancelled or combined in one or more of the cities.  These decisions will be made in April and all applicants will receive communication if any changes are necessary.

While in the US, students will travel with their groups to visit local cultural attractions and universities, experience what US community service entails and gain English language skills!


Summer Cultural and Study Tour participants must have a basic level of English language understanding and keen interest in learning about US history and culture. US families will open their homes to you and provide accommodations, meals and a supportive family for a most meaningful short-term summer intercultural experience!
