Derrick from Ghana, hosted in the US for 2011-12, took the stage at the recent YES Program End of Stay orientation in Washington DC to thank everyone responsible for making his year in the US possible. His rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" brought down the house! Invited guests included State Department representatives and staff and volunteers from YES Program placement organizations.


His year was made possible by families and schools who open their doors to YES Program students. Visit to learn more about hosting.
