Host family Testimonial:

“We love having three girls from Japan in our home! One is actually Korean, but has lived her whole life in Japan. They are like sisters or best friends giggling together, or watching a movie and helping us celebrate our kids’ birthdays. We are very happy to to be hosting students with YES and it’s more like they are a part of our family!”
