Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations and IHEs to find placements and arrange activities for foreign exchange high school students. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for all placement and activity needs to make the exchange successful.

The YES program annually provides approximately 800 high school students (aged 15 to 18.5 at the start of the program) from countries with significant Muslim populations an opportunity to live with an American family, attend high school, engage in community service, and participate in school and community activities. Funding through the Placement Components awards is also intended to allow Placement Organizations to sponsor local activities that will enhance students’ understanding of American style democracy and civil society. YES students are recruited from Albania, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Egypt, Gaza, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Israel (Arab Communities), Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Kuwait, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, North Macedonia, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Suriname, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, and the West Bank.

YES Inbound Program Goals: The overall goals of the YES program are as follows:

  • Promote better understanding by youth from the United States and participating countries about host society, people, institutions, values, and culture;
  • Foster lasting personal and professional ties;
  • Advance mutual understanding, respect for diversity, leadership skills, and understanding of civil society during the exchange experience and beyond; and
  • Enhance understanding of other countries and cultures and increase accurate understanding of American values in communities abroad.
