During the Post-Arrival Orientation, groups of international students and host families come together to discuss mutual issues and concerns, to share their experiences so far, and to learn more about maximizing their year together. This orientation complements the host family pre-arrival and student pre-departure orientations; it does not replace either.



To ensure that orientation programming is consistent in content and quality across the YFU network, we provide these requisite sessions. While their use is compulsory, orientation presenters are encouraged to implement their own teaching styles and methods as well as supplement with additional materials.

Please take a few moments to read about the objectives and the curriculum to best familiarize yourself with how the sessions were written and intended to be facilitated.
