A YFU exchange experience lays the foundation for many terrific stories. Please share one of your stories with us.

Need ideas? We love to hear stories about:
  • What you did to actively get involved with the community and meet other people
  • Your favorite time at school
  • An everyday, ordinary activity through they eyes of exchange
  • Something you learned about yourself through the YFU experience
  • Those super funny cultural bloopers
  • How YFU has impacted your adult life choices
  • How you learned to overcome challenges or blend as a new family or community member
  • Reunions
  • A quote or testimonial about the value of YFU and youth exchange
