Every year, hundreds of thousands of high school students travel around the world and to the United States to experience American culture. Thanks to Youth For Understanding, these students have a place to stay during their experience.

Youth For Understanding is a non-profit international educational organization with partners in more than 60 different countries. They're one of the world’s oldest, largest and most respected intercultural exchange programs.

The non-profit organization finds volunteers to host a student and experience American life with a host family. They have helped more than 250,000 students from all around the globe.

The school year is quickly approaching, and many more cultural exchange students are still looking for a place to live during their visit.
