Youth for Understanding USA is seeking American high school students for the 2004-2005 academic year to study abroad.
Opportunities exist to study abroad for a summer (three to eight weeks), a semester (four to six months) or a year (11 months). Dave Bellefeuille, northern Minnesota field director, said students have an opportunity to study in one of 37 different countries and receive full credit for their studies.
Students also may apply for one of the 300 scholarships available. For most YFU countries, students do not have to know the language before departure. Most countries offer language training for students on academic programs upon arrival.
Parents may host a foreign exchange student through YFU in their home.
For more information, contact Bellefeuille in Brainerd at 822-3878, or go online to www.yfu.org or call (800)-833-6243.
