About

Explore the life of ancient nomads in the world's second-largest landlocked country!

Students traveling to Mongolia for the summer are placed with local volunteer host families in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city. Ulaanbaatar is a cultural hotspot full of museums, soviet-era buildings, and ancient monasteries! YFU students in Mongolia also have the unique opportunity to spend 4 days of their summer living with a nomadic host family in the countryside. These short-term host families are thoroughly vetted by YFU staff, and want to offer exchange students the most authentic possible Mongolian experience! Finally, YFU students from around the world gather at the end of the summer for a one-week camp in the Mongolian countryside, where they explore rural Mongolia and have a chance to reflect on their experiences with other exchange students.
