Discover the many benefits of hosting with short term exchanges. Students from China, Germany, and many more countries want to learn more about your family and traditions as well as the American culture. Get ready to experience our American traditions as you never have before; from the eyes of an international student eager to learn as much as possible about US culture. For 2017, we are excited to provide short term hosting programs in the cities and surrounding suburban areas listed below.

Host families in Ann Arbor, MI; Denver, CO; Washington, DC; Miami, FL, and the surrounding areas are encouraged to get involved! Contact the YFU Short Term Coordinator for these hosting opportunities at, 202 774 5283, or 1.800.TEENAGE (800.833.6243).

Students receive English language instruction three days per week and participate in visits to cultural and community sites and events chaperoned by YFU staff and volunteers. Two-to-three days per week are dedicated to spending time with you, their YFU host family. Participants are eager to increase their English proficiency, make friends and contribute to American family life. View a sample itinerary for all cities.

Short term program participants have a basic level of English language understanding and keen interest in learning about US history and culture. Families who open their homes to these students provide accommodations, meals and supportive parenting for a most meaningful short term intercultural experience!

Please Note:  These programs will have minimum participant requirements and the programs may be cancelled or combined in one of the cities.  These decisions will be made in April and all applicants

We believe we met an outstanding young man who was courteous, respectful of our values, and a true ambassador.
