Come Together

give now. unite the world.

By opening minds and hearts, you'll help 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, and 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. Your investment in YFU today allows us to #ComeTogether and create a better world tomorrow.

Thinking back to it now it feels like a dream, but the experience allowed me to grow in ways I did not even know I could grow. I became independent and confident and understanding and a million other things, but the most important thing I became was, as my host family would say, ‘Tsukamoto Gracie.’ I became a member of a family that means just as much to me as my American family and the time I had with them was precious.
