NSLI-Y/YES Abroad Interviews Candidate Info in Global Link!

Dear NSLI-Y/YES Abroad Interview Season Volunteers,

We’d like to share some updates regarding the interview season below.

Semifinalist Information in Global Link

Great news! You can now find the contact information of the NSLI-Y academic year semifinalists in your area on Global Link with NSLI listed as the Responsible Org! If you have any trouble accessing this information, you can follow the Global Link instructions on the MyAFS Help & Learning Page or contact a SIC – nsliyinterviews@afsusa.org for further assistance.

As a reminder, NSLI-Y/YES Abroad candidates will be released on a rolling timeline. Also, please note that the YES Abroad application has been extended until December 16th.

Resources for Conducting Interviews

Interview season staff strongly recommend using Zoom and Calendly to conduct and schedule your interviews. These are reliable, secure platforms. AFS staff are experienced with both platforms and can help you with set up, give you guidance on how to use the platform, and assist with any difficulties, if needed.

We have created a Zoom best practices guide specifically for our interview season. We would also like to invite you to a Q&A session (registration link is here) on December 15 at 8:00pm ET to go over Zoom and Calendly inquiries and share a brief overview of the Calendly platform. This will the first of several Q&A sessions. You are also welcome to contact our team at nsliyinterviews@afsusa.org at any time with questions.

Required Training Webinars

All volunteer interviewers must attend a 2020-21 interview season training webinar. Training webinars are recorded and available to watch as an on-demand recording on the NSLI-Y/YES Abroad Interviews MyAFS Help and Learning page.

As always, please contact your SIC or nsliyinterviews@afsusa.org with any questions. We look forward to continuing to work together this interview season!
