it is not the crisis we face, but how we respond to it which will determine the future we leave for generations to come

At least $250,000 is needed for YFU to bridge the budget gap through this global crisis.

Acknowledging that my YFU experience changed my life and helped form the successful career and life I have today, I donated $50,000 to YFU. I want to give back to the organization that gave me so much and ensure its survival for generations to come. As a former investor and leader of the organization, I challenge you to match my gift.

Youth For Understanding is a dream come true…. To be part of it brings out the best in all of us. Each of us who has shared the magic of its being has contributed [to] something bigger than we are. We have learned to love and be loved, to trust and be trusted, to open our homes and our hearts to all people, everywhere.
