Exchange Student Host Families Needed

Two students from Kosovo are part of the US State Department-sponsored Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program, which brings students from more than 30 different countries. The students arrive in mid-August 2019 and stay until early June 2020, attending high school (typically 11th grade) and staying with a volunteer host family during their school year.

Attached are mini-bios on the two Kosovo students.  For security reasons, photos of the students are not allowed, nor is disclosing last names or home towns/contact info until prospective host families have been initially vetted.
