Discover Youth For Understanding
Library support is critical to advancing intercultural youth exchange in local communities!
For more than 60 years, local libraries and recreation centers have played a pivotal role in engaging YFU families, students, and volunteers. As part of facilitating a successful exchange experience and because of our strong commitment to safety, YFU conducts informational meetings and intercultural orientations for participants several times each year. By providing educational space and sharing opportunities to engage in global learning opportunities with YFU, libraries across the nation help to support students and families as they embark on this life-changing adventure.
