About

Have a journey you could have never imagined at home, and you'll discover that the YFU experience is a powerful engine for personal growth.Your host family will show you Paraguay customs including their incredible food! Chipa, a bagel like bread with cheese, is an all time favorite of the locals. Another favorite is called mate (pronounced mah-tay): you'll be served a strong herb tea made from mate leaves.

Spend time outdoors with the many hiking and camping trails and you may see the world’s largest rodent, the Capybara, which looks like a giant guinea pig! If you’re more interested in arts and crafts, the people of Paraguay would be happy to teach you embroidery and lace making.

Gap Year Abroad : On this program, students will still attend a local high school and are expected to demonstrate motivation to succeed in their schooling.

Volunteer in Paraguay! : Students 18 - 26 are encouraged to apply for the Community Service Program in Paraguay! Students still have the opportunity to live with a host family while also partnering with local non profits to assist in community service efforts such as social work, education, childhood & adolescence, biology, and health.
