The Big Day is Here!

The 12-month Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program 10th anniversary celebration reaches its zenith today as partners, host families, alumni and students on program connect virtually to share YES memories as well as 10th Anniversary cakes in their country chapters. We are honored by the special message on YouTube (above) from Evan Ryan, the Assistant Secretary of State at the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA). Please join the celebration on Twitter @yesprogramnews using #KLYES10 and like us on Facebook to share the awesomeness.

You are also invited to watch the 10th Anniversary Yearbook Video to see highlights from the yearlong celebration! The video will feature interviews with Senior Advisor at ECA, Rick Ruth, alumni from early years of the program, and a host family. After a look at the last 10 years of the YES program, as well as all of the 10th Anniversary celebration activities, the video looks forward to the next 10 years of the program.
