Youth for Understanding exchange program looks for Arizona host families

Youth for Understanding, a nonprofit international high school exchange program, is looking for Arizona volunteers to host high school exchange students for the coming school year.

Historically, it has been a challenge for YFU to place students in Arizona because public schools here start much earlier than other places in the country. But Katy Lindell, YFU’s Tucson-based community development manager, is hoping to expand the program’s presence in the state. 

For the coming school year, the program has students from 60 countries and every continent. YFU still has 174 students left to place across the U.S., and Lindell is hoping to bring at least 10 to Arizona. So far, they have one confirmed host family in Arizona – a Tucson family that will be hosting a boy from Chile.
