Students will be a member of the host family. Students develop many relationships during
the ten months on the YES program, however; the relationship with the host family is at
the heart of the cultural exchange and will likely to be the most important of the year.
All YES students need to possess a strong desire to be part of an American family and a
willingness to accept responsibilities in their new home. These responsibilities will
include (for both boys and girls) helping with household chores, keeping one's room
clean, and abiding by all the host family rules, even if they differ from their
Pakistani family's rules. YES students who expect to be treated like guests or given
special consideration in their American families are unlikely to succeed in the program.
