Unfortunately, Kyrgyzstan is not included in the eligible countries for this program (http://yesprograms.org/countries). However, students from Kyrgyzstan are eligible for the FLEX program, which is similar. It gives students (ages 15-17) the chance to live with a host family and attend a U.S. high school for a year. Check out that link for more information. I hope this helps!
I'm Basel from Jordan, and I've done 8th grade, and as I know, here in Jordan applicants must apply through they're at 9th grade, and school starts within almost a month, so that will be time to apply.
So please could you tell me a summary about how's life there? what are the risks or problems you face there? and was it a good experience for you? and finally are you satisfied with this experience?

Those are really good questions! Application deadlines vary but you should be between the ages of 15-17 to apply so if you are 14 years old for example, you have time. The YES program page for Jordan should help you greatly. There is also contact information on this page (right side) for questions specific to your country.
To learn more about participant experiences you can do two things. First, try posting your questions on the YES discussion wall to learn about the positive and challenging parts of the program. Second, you can read stories about members who have already completed the program. Here is the link to stories: YES stories. I really hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions!
Hi my name is Zakariya Hansrod, a deaf South African student who is 15 years old.
My brother is an almni of the YES programme, class of 2011, as part of the pioneer batch of students from my country.
I really want to be a part of the programme, but I never get any responses from AFS-South Africa, the sending organisation, and I don't think it is fair that I should be marginalised just because I am deaf, especially since the YES programme, with MYUSA, does explicitly cater for the deaf.
I am as good as any other hearing person, why should I not be given equal access to such an enriching opportunity: in South Africa I must confront the prospects of a life without higher education because there simply aren't any colleges here, and now I am not even able to apply.
Can anyone help me?
The YES program supports students with disabilities and encourages their participation. The website for the YES program in South Africa has specific instructions for how to apply. Have you tried emailing the coordinator in South Africa, Adam Baatjes? His email is email@example.com. You may also call with questions at 001 447 2673. We are happy you posed this question and hope to help direct you to the right places. Please let me know if you have any more questions. I hope this information has been useful. Good luck!
Thank you so much for your question. Students in the YES program are enrolled in accredited U.S. high schools. Usually you will study more than one subject which may include history and geography. For more information about selection procedures check out the YES program page for Bangladesh. There is specific contact information on the right hand side that should be very helpful to you.
