YFU Student Exchange – Australia, New Zealand
Youth For Undstanding (YFU) Student Exchange is an independent, non-profit, non-sectarian, volunteer-based organisation dedicated not just to international exchange for young people, but through them, the interchange and sharing of ideas, attitudes and mutual respect.
Originally established in the United States in 1951, the program was an immediate success and has expanded to 60 countries worldwide, and has successfully exchanged more than 250,000 students, and has been praised by many organisations and governments for its contribution to world peace and intercultural understanding.
YFU advances inter-cultural understanding, mutual respect and sound responsibility through education exchanges for youth, families and communities. "Make the World your Home"
