Infographics: Disability Inclusion in the FLEX and YES Programs, 2007-2016

A portion of an infographic highlighting total percentage of FLEX and YES students by disability type.
MIUSA invites you to explore disability inclusion in the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) and Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) programs, 2007-2016.

The Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) and Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) programs are competitive, merit-based scholarship programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.

Over the last ten years, more than 250 students with disabilities from 37 countries have participated these life-changing youth programs.

While living with a volunteer host family and attending a U.S. high school, FLEX and YES students gain leadership skills, learn about American society and values, and teach Americans about their countries and cultures. These students return to their home countries motivated to make positive changes in their communities.
