YES Programs


Who Are YES Alumni?

Welcome to a global community of over 12,000 YES alumni! Wherever you are in the world, know that you are part of this vibrant network. YES alumni also include the growing number of YES Abroad alumni -- American high school students who spend an exchange year in a YES country.

The goals of the YES Alumni Program are to expand on and practice what YES students have learned about volunteerism, community service, and citizen responsibility during their exchange year.

Tell us what cultural exchange means to you and why you think it is important!
