Since its founding in 1948, the IFYE program has helped thousands of young people from across the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the South Pacific learn about life in other lands.The IFYE program is an in-depth learning experience in which young adults live with host families in other countries to increase global awareness, develop independent study interests, and improve language skills. Programs vary from country to country, with some emphasizing an agricultural work experience, volunteering at an adult training center, or working with a local youth development program similar to 4-H.
It is your chance to travel the world, see new places, make new friends, and soak in another culture. An opportunity to experience another way of life – by living it! It is an adventure that will pay off for the rest of your life. You’ll gain a better understanding of life outside the USA.
