Summer Opportunities

Youth For Understanding USA

With YFU you'll become part of a host family, appreciate the nuances of a foreign language and test your confidence in new situations.  Although your YFU learning adventure will only last a summer, semester, or school year, your journey abroad will have a powerful, life-changing impact. Study abroad with YUF to develop an understanding of a faraway place, and also an understanding of an inner place.


ASSE World Heritage

A year or a semester away can't be measured in days alone.  You'll only be gone for a school year, but the experience will enrich the rest of your life.  For information on the ASSE International Exchange program.
