  1. What better way to commemorate the experience of 9/11 than to open your home to a Muslim High School exchange student! I am working with the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study scholarship program (YES), that was created in the wake of the events of 9/11. The scholars come from underrepresented communities (mostly Muslim) and there are a few more outstanding students awaiting news of a volunteer host family. The remaining YES scholarship recipients are from Mali, Tanzania, the Philippines and Pakistan. Please contact me asap if you can consider hosting one or two of these amazing scholars! rpetersen@yfu.org and thanks for reading. 🙂
