"Youth For Understanding"

Wanting to study abroad for a year or a semester? Get away for the summer? or do volunteering work?
YFU - Youth For Understanding is the organisation for you!
I did my exchange year with them and I had the best time of my life during that year.
They really listen to the student and want the very best for their students.
YFU is a non-profit organisation, that means that they don't do it for the money, they want to give their students the time of their lives.
They have excellent information meetings and for the returnee's there is a lot to do when they get back home to help the students that are in their area.
You'll meet other people that have the same interests as you even before you have left. And the area rep. organizes a lot of fun activities so you meet the other YFU students in your area.
This is a great organisation to go with if you want to do a gap year.
For more information you can go to their website:

    Indeed we could do with more.

    For a review of this kind unfortunately this is a little too general and does not offer sufficient focus on the "product" - more accurately the service in this case - and how it works. The purpose of Ciao is not as a "feeder" for other sites, obviously we have the option of going there, but we do need to get all the basic information from a review. R.

    It's always best to add anything extra to your review, rather than replying in comments, as not everyone reads the comments and more information usually means higher ratings
