A U.S.-funded student exchange program is giving young people from around the world the chance of a lifetime - to study and live in America. The state department’s Youth Exchange and Study program - known as YES - targets students mostly from countries with large Muslim populations. The students compete to be selected, and if chosen, are brought to the U.S. to study for a full academic year and live with an American family. VOA’s Kokab Farshori has the details.
