Four current YES students from Libya worked together to create a message for their country - a message of peace and friendship from their American hosts. 

In order of appearance, the video features Moones Hussein (YES 2016-2017, hosted by YFU in Meadville, PA), Suleiman Latrsh (YES 2016-2017, hosted by AFS in Arlington, VA), Jehad Oumer (YES 2016-2017, hosted by AFS in Washington, DC) and Anas Elhadi (YES 2016-2017, hosted by AYA in Sierra Vista, AZ).

The video includes a montage of interviews with a number of teachers, hosts parents, and other members of the communities who are caring for these YES students. And it's a big hit - it's already received over 100,000 views on Facebook!! It's also available on YouTube and below. See it for yourself!
