10th Anniversary of YES Program

The U.S. Embassy celebrated 10 years of the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program on Thursday, Sept. 22 with a reception hosted by Ambassador Glyn Davies. This popular exchange program sends over 900 high-school students from around the world annually to spend a year in the U.S., studying in American high schools. YES alumni shared their memories of the U.S. and talked about their academic and professional successes in Thailand since their return. The reception also recognized five Americans studying in the YES Abroad program. They are studying in Thai high schools across the country.
