Selamat Datang! Five American high school students begin their 10-month Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Abroad program this week. During the program, the students will stay with Malaysian host families and attend Form Four education at secondary schools across the states of Negeri Sembilan and Selangor.

Local program partner AFS Antarabudaya Malaysia organized a 4-day arrival orientation for the students in Kuala Lumpur before they go to their respective host family placements.  The students also visited the U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur for a half day briefing on Embassy operations, safety and security.
