YES is highlighting an alum from each year of the program.
Show your love and gratitude for your host families this March with Host Family Appreciation Month! To celebrate the relationships and bonds you built during your year in the U.S., YES is inviting current participants and alumni to say thank you to their host families, share videos or pictures of their time together, and speak about what made their experience in their host community unique.
For Host Family Appreciation Month, create a short video (no longer than 2 minutes) sharing memories from your host family, what made your time together special, or what your relationship looks like now.
PROMPT: What made your time with your host family special and what surprised you about the experience?
(Ideas: Was your host community a big change from what you are used to at home? Was your host family larger or smaller than yours? Were your host parents retired? Were you surprised by what you had in common?)
Submit your videos throughout the month of March at http://bit.ly/HostFamAM to be highlighted on the YES website/social media!
