Warm greetings and Happy (soon approaching) Juneteenth!

The NSLI-Y and YES Abroad staff are happy to share that a list of 2023-2024 NSLI-Y Virtual Summer Intensive (VSI), NSLI-Y Summer Overseas, NSLI-Y year program, and YES Abroad finalists from your area has been posted to MyAFS Help&Learning for the NSLI-Y/YES Abroad Interview Season. AFS NSLI-Y is excited to continue our overseas and virtual summer programs. You can learn more about our VSI programs here and here.

As a student privacy measure, links to the data are only sent to Interviewers from the student region, and only available to registered AFS Volunteers using their AFS Global Link username and password. The list(s) will be available until June 23.

Data privacy:

  • The NSLI-Y and YES Abroad lists are accurate as of June 16.

  • Finalists who have been assigned to programs implemented by AFS are listed in bold.
  • Finalists who have been assigned to other implementing organizations must not be contacted by AFS unless they have previously expressed interest in being contacted by AFS.

The data is confidential to registered AFS Volunteers and must not be shared outside of registered AFS Volunteers in your area. The lists will be removed on June 23. We sincerely appreciate your work on the Interview Season, and are grateful to everyone who was involved in successfully completing another NSLI-Y and YES Abroad interview season!
