Bridging Access Gap is Urgent.png

We believe cultural exchange is for everyone, regardless of their demographic background or socioeconomic status. For many minority students in the US, studying abroad is merely a dream. Only 30% of US students that study abroad are minorities. With your help, we can change that. Your support will ensure all deserving students can experience the life-changing benefits of intercultural exchange.

By supporting YFU USA, you'll enable learning that transforms lives. Cultural exchange introduces students to the countries and cultures that they know exist, but feel distant from. They share in day-to-day life; when seen through fresh eyes, the ordinary becomes extraordinary as host families share their traditions and customs, offering each student a unique, personal version of life. As a result, cultural exchange reinforces our common humanity by underscoring that people everywhere share the same emotions, joys, and challenges. It also humanizes diplomacy, taking it beyond the public face of policy and politics. Ultimately, cultural exchange creates powerful interpersonal experiences, increasing tolerance and helping to eliminate stereotypes. Today, more people than ever would benefit from the international exchange experience. Today, you can give the life-changing gift of exchange, ensuring more equitable opportunities and greater social mobility for minority students and future generations. You’ll help the world #ComeTogether and embrace our beautiful diversity.
